Significant Wood Design and Construction Changes to the 2018 IBC and NDS® (BCD121)

The 2018 International Building Code (IBC) published by the International Code Council and the National Design Specification® (NDS) for Wood Construction published by the American Wood Council are both now available. This presentation will provide an overview of the significant changes to wood design and construction provisions relative to previous editions and include design examples.  Most of the changes in the NDS are a result of the adoption of the ASCE/SEI Standard 7-16 Minimum Design Loads and Associated Criteria for Buildings and Other Structures which includes increased wind loads. 

Learning Objectives

1. Identify changes in the 2018 IBC and NDS
2. Identify wind load increases in ASCE 7-16 that affect wood design and construction
3. Identify new fastener provisions developed to address increased wind loads
4. Design nails for withdrawal and head pull-through to resist new wind loads

 

Equivalencies: 1.5 Hour of Instruction = 0.15 Continuing Education Units (CEU) = 1.5 Professional Development Hours (PDH) = 1.5 Learning Units (LU)
