ICC Preferred Provider Course Number: 25899New engineers and architects will find this seminar useful as well as mid-career engineers looking for a review of structural load paths. The load path, simply put, is the direction in which each consecutive load passes through connected members. The sequence commences at the highest point of the structure working all the way down to the footing system, ultimately transferring the total load of the structure to the foundation. The direction that loads are transferred through a structure is important and must be identified. With a focus on connections, this webinar considers moment frame, braced frame and shear wall gravity and lateral load paths through a building. Buddy Showalter is a Senior Staff Engineer with ICC's Product Development group – responsible for development of technical publications and education related to building codes and standards. He is also a member of the Editorial Board for STRUCTURE magazine, published jointly by NCSEA, ASCE/SEI, and CASE. Prior to joining ICC, Showalter spent 26 years with the American Wood Council. He is a graduate of Virginia Tech.
