Instructor: Paul Acker
Inspection of residential buildings that endured past hurricanes in Florida has shown that one of the most damaged structural components in residential homes is the gable-end wall or the gable-end truss for timber wall or masonry wall constructions. This course is based on the 2017 Florida Building Code changes that surround the most common causes of gable end failure during high velocity hurricane events.
The objective of this course is to inform building contractors of proven methods of building sustainable roof structures when built in areas subjected to high velocity winds.
This Course Covers:
- Categories, Regions and Practical Perspective
- Reinforcing Roof to Wall Connections
- High-Velocity Hurricane Zone and Construction Details
- Steel Joists
- Gable Endwalls
- Wood Members
- Unit Stresses
- Vertical Framing
- Horizontal Framing
