Program Description: 

This course covers a brief overview of code evaluation process, how load values are achieved (calculation / testing), gravity Load carrying devices, good installations, poor installations and connectors called out in the IRC.

Learning Objects:

1. Understand testing and product design loads in accordance with ICC-ES AC13 and ASTM D1761, all final testing is conducted by a third-party  IAS accredited testing laboratory.
2. Listed product capacities is in accordance with NDS®, and applying Durations Factors for mechanical fastening, Live Load, Roof Snow, Construction Load and Wind/Seismic loading based on code requirements. Duration factors that apply to wood design and specifically connections.
3. Forces applied perpendicular to level ground surface. Dead Loads – Building Material Weight, Live Loads – Building Contents and occupant loads, gravity load carrying capacity must not be compromised. Selecting appropriate load carrying devices simplifies making such connections.
4. Highlight sections of the IRC that discuss the use of connectors. IRC contains provisions which specify connectors in certain applications. Evaluate the applications and provide common structural connector solutions.
