The American Wood Council will present a free webinar on February 19 entitled "2012 IBC, ASCE 7 & 2008 SDPWS SEISMIC PROVISIONS FOR WOOD CONSTRUCTION."
This presentation highlights 2012 International Building Code (IBC), 2010 Minimum Design Loads for Buildings and Other Structures (ASCE 7-10) and the 2008 Special Design Provisions for Wind and Seismic (SDPWS) requirements applicable to the seismic design of wood structures. Wood-frame shear wall and diaphragm code issues are discussed including deflection equations, detailing requirements, and limitations on the use of wood in seismic design. Changes from previous codes and standards will also be discussed and additional resources will be referenced.
