.15

Learning Objectives:  Upon completion of this course the participants will be able to define Brace Wall Line, Brace Wall panel, and Bracing Methods. We will learn the basic rules for wall bracing including braced Part 1wall line spacing and off-sets as well as brace wall panel locations and maximum spacing. The uplift requirement at brace wall panels will also be discussed.

General Description:   This course will focus on typical building techniques used in the north east. That is, the continuous sheathed method of wall bracing. We will look at narrow alternatives such as the code prescribed portal frame methods, both as a solution on garage door walls as well as within the home where large window openings prevent the use of conventional methods. We will go through the code sections, tables, and figures as well as examples of what to look for in a braced wall plan. We will learn to calculate the minimum amount of bracing required. We will learn how to check a plan for conformance to the code. What are the red flags? What should we be looking for?
