Water, Wind, Windows & Walls with Continuous Insulation

Originally presented by Jay Crandell, P.E. at the 2022 IIBEC International Convention & Tradeshow, this presentation reviews structural wind resistance and water-resistance research supporting various detailing options in the context of new provisions in the latest editions of the IBC and IRC. It also outlines the thermal efficiency and thermal bridging implications of various details to integrate punched openings with ci on walls, and includes a sneak-preview of new research on wind-driven rain hazard characterization as a means to guide design and detailing decisions for water-resistance of building enclosures and components.
