Options for wood structural systems continue to expand. 

Today’s building codes coupled with advances in wood science and building technology have expanded the options for wood construction. Building codes recognize wood’s safety and structural performance capabilities and allow its use in a broad range of applications, from the light-duty repetitive framing common in small structures to the larger and heavier framing systems used to build larger and taller buildings—including highrises, 竞技场和工厂. 

What is “tall timber” and is it right for your project?

The 2021 IBC includes three new construction types—Type IV-A, IV-B and IV-C—which allow the use of mass timber or noncombustible materials in buildings up to 18, 12层和9层(分别). 在以前版本的代码下, wood buildings can usually be a maximum of five or six stories depending on the occupancy group. The term “tall timber” is associated with buildings that exceed the limits of previous codes for number of stories, 高度和某些情况下的面积.

高度和面积计算器应用程序

高度和面积(H&A) Calculator app for iPhone and Android is a joint effort of WoodWorks and the American Wood Council. It provides users with an app-based approach to calculating maximum heights and areas for buildings of various occupancies and fire protection based on 2006 to 2015 editions of the International Building Code (IBC). Input a potential building’s geometry, site conditions (e.g., 开放的正面), 建筑类型, 和入住率, and allowable heights and areas can be determined.

This calculator is not meant to be a replacement for the IBC and does not encompass all of its design options. The IBC should always be consulted for specific requirements related to designs and site conditions. 了解更多
