The intended audience for this course is experienced design professionals who want to expand their depth of knowledge in the design of wood structures for gravity and lateral loads. The course will focus on important aspects of member and connection design and the application of adjustment factors for member and connection design, respectively. More complicated and problematic areas, such as creep deflection and ponding, will be covered. The second half of the course will address design for wind and seismic, using the latest standards available. Field data on performance of buildings subject to lateral loads will be reviewed and the results of a full-scale building test will be correlated to the ordinary lateral-design solution.
