Mobile-Ready Webcast: 2015 National Design Specification for Wood Construction

RedVector has released a new webcast:

2015 National Design Specification for Wood Construction

In order to maintain the safety and welfare of the population, the structural design requirements as defined in the building codes are consistently updated. Traditionally this occurs in 3 year cycles. In 2015, the American Wood Council updated the National Design Specification for Wood Construction (NDS). As part of the update there were significant changes to the Special Design Provisions for Wind and Seismic (SDPWS). The last significant change to the SDPWS occurred in 2008.

This interactive online course will highlight the significant changes in the NDS including the addition of Cross Laminated Timber. Key criteria will be discussed and numerical examples will be provided illustrating the design changes.
