Description:
In wood-frame buildings of three or more stories, cumulative shrinkage can be significant and have an impact on the function and performance of finishes, openings, mechanical/electrical/plumbing (MEP) systems, and structural connections. However, many have learned that accommodating wood shrinkage is actually very straightforward. This course describes procedures for estimating wood shrinkage and provides detailing options that minimize its effects on building performance.
