STD313 – Part 4 of 4: Foundation Design to Resist Flood Loads and WFCM Calculated Wind Loads

PDF YouTube Q&A SelfStudy

This webinar builds on the three previous Load, Load Path, and Connections webinars to describe how loads must be transferred through the building to reach the foundation system. Foundation systems utilizing elevated piles will be emphasized. Due to minimal design information on elevated foundations in the building code, this webinar is intended to provide some design basics that may not be readily available.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Understand the concepts of load path for wind pressure applied to buildings
  2. Understand how loads are distributed into foundations
  3. Be able to describe various foundation systems best-suited for wind and flood loads
  4. Understand the most likely foundation failures attributable to wind only
