This series provides a step-by-step approach to applying the structural provisions of the 2018 International Building Code® and referenced standards. Volume 2 contains code application examples of light-frame, tilt-up, and masonry construction. Diaphragm flexibility, center of mass, collectors and chords, deflection, and anchorage are discussed through examples. In- and out-of-plane seismic loads are analyzed.

Volume 2 details sample structures of wood, cold-formed steel, tilt-up concrete, and masonry, including:

  • Four-Story Wood Light-Frame Hotel
  • Cold-Formed Steel Light-Frame Three-Story Apartment on Concrete Podium
  • Masonry Shear Wall Building
