As of September 1, 2019, quizzes for NCARB’s long-format monographs (hardcopies and "digital monographs") were discontinued. We continue to offer our popular short-format courses for HSW Learning Units, and offer a new course each month.
Wind Forces Part III: Building Design Concepts to Resist Wind/Descriptive Examples of Building Design for Wind
Format: CE Course
CE Info: 1.25 HSW LU

Buildings can be considered as an assembly of parts or components. These parts may be major structural elements or seemingly non-structural elements that contribute to the enclosure of space. This course focuses on building structure and how it may be designed to resist pressures. Through the use of examples, a review is presented of the structural systems of two buildings and the possible construction types, and details to be considered when the design process focuses on the effects of wind. This is the third course in a series of five courses on wind forces. Each part may be taken as an individual course.
