Design of Facade Attachments, Session L1: Facade Attachments, Part 1
Every type of facade system presents its own challenges for the design team. Where and how are the gravity and lateral loads supported? How much movement can the facade system accommodate? What is the jointing pattern? In this session, we will explore masonry cavity wall systems, aluminum-glass curtain wall systems and panelized systems such as precast concrete panels or prefabricated metal-framed panels with masonry or glass-fiber reinforced concrete facing to help answer these questions.
This course is based on a past AISC Live Webinar.
