Design of Facade Attachments, Session L3: Lateral Drifts and Facade Attachments
When buildings sway under wind and seismic loads, the facade systems must accommodate inter-story drifts between the building’s floor levels. Finding ways to accommodate these drifts through the height of the building, particularly at corners and at the ground story, can be challenging. In this session, we will consider ways to detail facade attachments to accommodate a building’s lateral drifts.
