Guide to Wood Construction in High Wind Areas for One- and Two-Family Dwellings addresses wind design requirements in 90, 100, 110, 120 and 130 mph wind zones. These guides are based on provisions contained in AF&PA's Wood Frame Construction Manual (WFCM) for One- and Two-Family Dwellings, 2001 Edition, the reference document for high-wind wood-frame construction in the International Residential Code (IRC). Use of the high wind provisions of these Guides will result in design solutions that prescriptively meet the requirements of the WFCM and the IRC. The high wind provisions in these guides can be used to achieve code compliant design solutions for wood frame dwellings located in wind speed zones that exceed the limitations in the IRC.
Individual publications are available for 90, 100, 110, 120 and 130 wind zones.
