The Wood Frame Construction Manual (WFCM) for One- and Two-Family Dwellings was updated and is designated ANSI/AWC WFCM (Figure 1). WFCM. • Wood Frame Construction Manual. • WFCM uses ASCE 7- 10 wind design provisions. • IRC uses ASCE wind design provisions. The Wood Frame Construction Manual (WFCM) for One- and Two-Family Dwellings was developed by the American Wood Council (AWC) Wood Design.

Permanent Bracing for Residential Metal-Plate-Connected Wood Trusses In this unit, the basics of permanent bracing design for wood trusses and the importance of a complete bracing system will be presented. Understand the purpose of the WFCM and its development process. Chapter 2 provides minimum loads for buildings within the scope of this document for the purpose of establishing specific resistance requirements.
He may be reached at bshowalter awc. Therefore, it is perfectly acceptable to use Chapter 3 provisions for parts of a design and Chapter 2 for other parts. Foundation systems utilizing elevated piles will be emphasized.
Understand the difference between segmented and perforated shear wall design. The WFCM includes design and construction provisions for high wind, seismic, and snow loads for connections, wall systems, floor systems, and roof systems. The primary changes to wfc, WFCM include: The WFCM prescriptive method will is used to illustrate the magnitude and applied location for loads applicable to low-rise wood frame construction.
Frank Woeste ator e-mail: Understand hold down design. Vertical and lateral load paths will be described including the role of shear walls in buildings. The latter tends to provide more conservative results.
STRUCTURE magazine | WFCM Changes
This unit will provide an overview of the significant changes to the DCA 6 and include several examples showing application of the guide. Design values for structural lumber, structural glued laminated glulam timber, and fasteners were incorporated in the integral Supplement of the WFCM. Attendees will learn to use checklists and detailing summaries to ensure a complete load path is prescriptively designed for the wall and floor systems.
Learn the appropriate high wind, seismic, and snow loads to apply to residential structures based on code-referenced load standards. The limitations of applicability are provided in Chapters 2 and 3. A range of structural elements are covered, including sawn lumber, structural glued laminated timber, wood structural sheathing, I-joists, and trusses. The WFCM provides engineered and prescriptive design requirements for wood frame construction used in one and two-family dwellings.
A comprehensive table listing section by section changes to the WFCM, including modifications to Supplement and Appendix material, is available at www.

This unit will provide a chapter by chapter overview of the WFCM which includes provisions for designing wood frame structures for wind, snow, and seismic loads. Among the concerns is the number of tie-downs required for shear walls, which can present both cost increases and practical construction challenges. Browse FAQs for this topic.
The local authority having jurisdiction should be consulted to determine whether conversion to a mph basis is permissible. Attendees will learn the appropriate high wind, seismic, and snow loads to apply to residential structures based on code-referenced load standards. Be able to describe various methods for making connections Understand how connections are expected to perform Understand various locations in a load path that require sound connections Understand what type of connections provide continuity to the foundation Equivalencies: WFCM Editions Learn to use prescriptive tables to size wood members and connections to resist high wind, seismic, and snow loads in the roof story system.
Several resources available for shear wall design will be discussed and design results will be compared using the various resources. This option is mobile friendly and compatible with all devices, including mobile tablets and smart phones.
This presentation will provide an overview of the significant changes in the WFCM relative to the previous edition. WFCM Commentary only available with purchase. Its reference in the IBC and IRC will allow for its use in those jurisdictions adopting the latest building code. A range of structural elements are covered, including sawn lumber, structural glued laminated timber, wood structural sheathing, I-joists, and trusses. Line, Philip and Bill Coulbourne.
Research: Rating Action: Moody’s Affirms 11 Classes of WFCM LC5 – Moody’s
Understand the concepts of load path for wind pressure applied to buildings Understand how loads are distributed into foundations Be able to describe various foundation systems best-suited for wind and flood loads Understand the most likely foundation failures attributable to wind only Equivalencies: We recommend users of early versions of Internet Explorer to update to Version 10 or later.
Identify and understand the basic shear wall system to resist wind and seismic loads. Capacities are based on provisions in the NDS and have been verified by full scale testing. For a volume license the PDF is licensed to the person in which it is assigned.
There are several design wfcj and standards to assist engineers, architects, and building officials with the design of shear walls.
