Knowing the correct wind speed for the area in which you are building a wood frame structure is crucial to the safety of the building's inhabitants. This interactive online course will describe how to use the 2012 version of the American Wood Council's Wood Frame Construction Manual (WFCM). This version incorporates the use of wind speed maps from ASCE 7-10 and the design of both vertical and lateral load paths using the WFCM. There are many nuances to the correct use of this manual and many of these will be covered to help the practitioner correctly use this document that is referenced in the International Building and Residential Codes.
