[Webinar] Post-Frame Building Design Manual (2nd Ed)

For Architects

This session provides an in depth review of the contents and key structural design provisions of the second edition of the Post Frame Building Design Manual (PFBDM). The second edition, first published in March 2015, includes many significant updates to the first edition.
 
The session begins with an overview of the PFBDM contents, then continues with a discussion of the integrated presentation of design provisions, commentary and examples throughout and a general discussion of how the second edition incorporates both allowable strength design (ASD) and load resistance factor design (LRFD) methodologies.
 
The session then provides an overview of the key PFBDM provisions and design aids for shallow post and pier foundation design, diaphragm design of post-frame structural systems, and wood sidewall post design.
