Title: Choosing the Right Connections for Wind-Resistant Design
Date: Wednesday, August 12, 2020
Time: 11:00 AM Pacific Time
Duration: 45 minutes plus live Q&A

In this webinar we'll discuss wind effects on structures, determining wind demand loads, and designing a continuous load path using the High Wind Guide – a tool specifically created to assist in tackling this task. We’ll walk through an example on using the guide to select proper connections for a wood-framed structure, as well as discuss the right connectors for use with other construction materials, such as in wood-to-steel or wood-to-concrete/CMU connections.

After attending this webinar, you should be able to:

  • Understand the use of the recently updated High Wind Guide in the design and construction of structures in high-wind regions
  • Identify various connections to complete a continuous load path from roof to foundation
  • Quickly navigate sections of the High Wind Guide
  • Identify connection options specific to high-wind regions that aren’t shown in other publications

Participants in the live event will have the opportunity to ask questions.

Continuing education credits will be offered for this webinar. Participants can earn one professional development hour (PDH) or 0.1 continuing education unit (CEU). Contact [email protected] with any questions.
