2018 NDS Changes (STD120)

This presentation will provide an overview of the significant changes for wood design per AWC's National Design Specification® (NDS) for Wood Construction. The 2018 NDS is referenced in the 2018 International Building Code and 2018 International Residential Code and used to design wood structures worldwide. The 2018 NDS references ASCE/SEI Standard 7-16 Minimum Design Loads and Associated Criteria for Buildings and Other Structures which includes increased wind loads. Participants will learn about changes in the 2018 NDS to address increased wind loads and gain an overview of the standard.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify changes in the 2018 NDS.
  • Identify wind load increases in ASCE 7-16 that affect wood design and construction.
  • Identify new fastener provisions developed to address increased wind loads.
  • Design nails for withdrawal to resist the new wind loads.


1 Hour of Education Credit will be available for this course.
