Designing for Wind and Earthquake Bracing Capacity

A building must be designed to resist the wind and earthquake demands placed upon it. Once the demands along and across the building for both wind and earthquake are known, the designer needs to ensure that both the subfloor and wall bracing systems provide the required capacity to meet the demand.

Topics covered in this self-paced module:

  • Calculating subfloor bracing capacity
  • Subfloor bracing scenarios
  • Calculating wall bracing capacity
  • Wall bracing scenarios
  • Library
