The seismic performance of wood structures relies to a significant degree
on detailing of seismic load path connections. In fact, in wood light-frame
construction significantly more time is typically spent on connection detailing
than on seismic design calculations. This presentation will review the concept
of a complete load path, review the range of load path connections commonly
occurring in wood construction, and discuss best-practices for seismic
connection detailing including lessons learned from past earthquake experience
and from laboratory seismic testing.
