After the Storm – Lessons Learned about Building for High Wind Resistance – Live Session
This session will discuss structural failures observed during storm damage assessments and the behavior of wood structures during high wind events. An overview of how high wind forces work, the importance of a complete load path, and how good design and construction practices can improve the storm resistance of buildings will be provided. Both code requirements and APA’s above code recommendations which contribute to improved overall performance in the structural shell, will be discussed. They focus on good connection details and common failure modes seen in storm damage assessments and help builders cost effectively build a safer and more resilient home. By understanding key code requirements and lateral load concepts, home damage in future storms can be minimized.
