1995 Wood Frame Construction Manual

The Wood Frame Construction Manual for One- and Two-Family Dwellings, 1995 SBC High Wind Edition (WFCM-SBC) was published in February 1996. This comprehensive design and construction manual provides engineered and prescriptive design requirements for wood frame one- and two-family dwellings in high wind areas only (90-120 mph fastest mile windspeed). Provisions of the WFCM-SBC are based on wind loads derived from provisions of the 1994 Standard Building Code with 1996 revisions, for buildings 60 feet or less in height.

WFCM-SBC includes design and construction provisions for connections, wall systems, floor systems, and roof systems. A range of structural elements are covered, including sawn lumber, structural glued laminated timber, wood structural panel sheathing, I-joists, and trusses. Also included are provisions approved by the Standard Building Code for perforated shear walls, wall stud system factors, and increased capacities for shear walls and diaphragms used in high wind applications.
