Michelle Kam-Biron, PE, SE, SECB, AWC Senior Director of Education, and Mike Romanowski, PE, Woodworks will be presenting:

  • International Building Code (IBC) Essentials for Wood Construction Based on the 2015 BC (Fire resistance considerations for wood construction is part of this presentation)
  • Calculating ASD Shear Wall Capacities per 2015 SDPWS Using the Equal Deflection Approach
  • Significant Changes to AWC's 2015 NDS and the 2015 SDPWS
  • Seismic Example WFCM/SDPWS Comparison 2015
  • ITW: Gravity Design - Types of loads, design methods, nomenclature, reference design values, adjustment factors, section properties, axial/shear/flexural design, deflection, combined loads, connection design & design examples.
  • ITW: Lateral Design - Types of loads, nomenclature, shear wall & diaphragm design, engineered shear wall types, prescriptive braced wall lines & portal frames & non WSP resisting elements.

An excellent opportunity for engineers, architects, plans examiners, designers, inspectors and contractors to learn what they need to know to get through a structural plan review and inspection for engineered (non-conventional) single family dwelling construction and other light wood framed construction.
