The 2018 International Building Code (IBC) published by the International Code Council and the National Design Specification® (NDS) for Wood Construction published by the American Wood Council are both now available. This presentation provides an overview of the significant changes to wood design and construction provisions relative to previous editions and include design examples. Most of the changes in the NDS are a result of the adoption of the ASCE/SEI Standard 7-16 Minimum Design Loads and Associated Criteria for Buildings and Other Structures which includes increased wind loads.
