Packed with example problems, the Guide to the Design of Out-of-Plane Wall Anchorage: Based on the 2006/2009 International Building Code and ASCE/SEI 7-05 is the solution to out-of-plane wall anchorage analysis and detailing requirements.
The 2006 International Building Code
, the 2009 International Building Code
, and the ASCE/SEI 7-05
contain detailed design requirements for wall/cladding anchorage systems to resist out-of-plane wind and seismic load effects. These provisions aren't easily located in the code and/or referenced standards, are material specific, and often challenging to apply for many practical building configurations. This book solves this problem and breaks down the out-of-plane anchorage analysis and detailing requirements separately for seismic and wind loads. Structural walls, nonstructural walls, parapets, and cladding are each considered separately as required by governing provisions.
- Solutions for high-wind areas, Seismic Design Categories A, B, and D are provided for each example problem.
- Example anchorage problems for connecting concrete, masonry, timber, and precast walls/panels to diaphragms composed of various materials are presented.
- Special provisions for subdiaphragms, continuous ties/struts, pilasters, straps, eccentric connections, and wood ledgers are included.
- A detailing example for economical tilt-up wall anchorage using just metal decking is presented.
- Comprehensive examples are provided for subdiaphragms composed of wood structural panel sheathing on wood framing and metal decking on steel joists.
Guide to the Design of Out-of-Plane Wall Anchorage: Based on the 2006/2009 IBC and ASCE/SEI 7-05 is an ideal reference for practicing civil and structural engineers as well as college engineering students. The guide addresses many issuses that are frequently encountered during out-of-plane wall anchorage design.
From the Preface
This design guide presents a comprehensive summary of and practical applications for out-of-plane wall load provisions and design criteria for both seismic and wind forces as presented in the 2006/2009 International Building Codes and Minimum Design Loads for Buildings and Other Structures (ASCE/SEI 7-05). The provisions and criteria presented in this book are organized by load type and element type (i.e., structural wall, nonstructural wall, parapet and anchorage) for easy illustration and mental grouping. The material in this book is intended for use by licensed structural engineers or those working directly for licensed structural engineers. Many of the examples in this book require engineering judgment, and assumptions made on certain examples may or may not be applicable to an unrelated building being considered separately by a structural engineer. In addition, this design guide focuses on design for out-of-plane loads. Simultaneous demands and/or serviceability criteria may require special design details in some cases.
The discussion and examples in Chapters 2 through 4 are based on both the 2009 International Building Code and the 2006 International Building Code. Both of these building codes reference ASCE/SEI 7-05 making load determination differences minor. However, Chapters 5 and 6 rely heavily on material standards, some of which have undergone significant changes between the two building codes. Hence, Chapters 5 and 6 have been authored in accordance with the 2006 International Building Code only.
Each example in the book is presented using concept-oriented instruction whereby the problems are independent of previous solutions and minor problem modifications are utilized to maximize learning of key concepts while studying this guide.

About the Author
Timothy W Mays PhD PE
received his Bachelor's Degree in Civil Engineering from the University of Memphis in 1996. He received both of his graduate degrees from Virginia Tech. His M.S.C.E research was focused on structural/coastal engineering and his Ph.D. research was in the field of structural/earthquake engineering. He is currently an Associate Professor of Civil Engineering at The Citadel in Charleston, SC. After founding both organizations, Dr. Mays served as Executive Director of the Structural Engineers Association of South Carolina. Additionally, he currently serves as Chairman of the Structural Technical Group for ASCE SC Section and NCSEA Publications Committee Chairman. He has received two national teaching awards (ASCE and NSPE) and both national (NSF) and regional (ASEE) awards for outstanding research. Most recently, he was honored as the recipient of NCSEA's 2009 Service Award. He is a prolific speaker who sits on several code writing committees and his areas of expertise are code applications, structural design, seismic design, steel connections, structural dynamics and civil engineering aspects of antiterrorism.
