August Seminar 2014

APA – 2012 IRC BRACED WALLS”

This seminar will cover the long-history of bracing and how loads are handled through braced wall lines and braced wall panels.  It will break down the general requirements of wall bracing and show how to use the tables within the 2012 IRC to determine if braced wall lines meet code requirements. 

 Because of the many options in the wall bracing section of the code, a “Simplified Method” of bracing has been created.  This section of code, along with an alternate simplified method created by APA, will be addressed.  The new APA “bracing calculator,” an online tool for showing compliance with IRC bracing, will be demonstrated as a method for providing a bracing report to the builder and building official.

 About The Presenter

Robert Clark, Senior Engineered Wood Specialist with APA, holds a degree in Architecture from The University of Michigan.  Mr. Clark has specialized in several areas for APA, including post-frame construction, moisture management, analysis of wall bracing code requirements, engineered wood floor detailing, green building, raised wood floors, advanced framing and research on wood foundations.
