Prescriptive Design
VERSA-STUD® may be used as wall studs in accordance
with the prescriptive requirements in section 2308.9 of
the IBC and section R602 of the IRC. The below table
lists span and spacing limits for prescriptive stud design.
Prescriptive design is valid for structures where the wind
load does not exceed 110 mph (100 mph in hurricane-
prone regions), the ground snow load does not exceed
70 psf, dead loads on floors or roof do not exceed 20 psf,
and several other provisions listed in both building codes.
The building design professional of record shall determine
whether the structure qualifies for prescriptive design.

Using VERSA-STUD® for Cabinet and Tile Walls
Dimension lumber can exceed
30% moisture content. Wood
dries to a moisture content of
10-12% once the building is
finished. Shrinkage and warping
of 2x studs is a problem in walls
where cabinets are hung or tile
is installed. Though 2x studs
cost less, added labor from
shimming cabinets, straightening
walls and drywall repairs
can quickly add up. VERSASTUDS® eliminate these issues,
providing a straight and true wall
every time.

Engineered Design Assumptions for Load Tables
Load table values are based upon axial loads applied at
the top of the stud and lateral wind loads perpendicular to
the wall (out of plane loading). Lateral loads parallel to the
wall (in-plane loading), caused by seismic and wind, shall
be designed by the project’s design professional of record.
Allowable loads based upon the design provisions of the
National Design Specification for Wood Construction
(NDS), 2005 edition.
Studs receive axial load concentrically through a double
top plate and thus no eccentricity is assumed.
A buckling length coefficient Ke (based on the fixity of
stud ends) is 1.0.
Load table values based upon assumption that stud
walls have structural sheathing applied to one side or a
combination of non-structural sheathing on the exterior
side and gypsum wallboard on the interior side.
Blocking between studs required at a maximum spacing
of 8'-0".
The repetitive member factor of 1.04 has been applied to
the VERSA-STUD® allowable bending stress.
Wind load duration factor CD = 1.6.
Maximum rough opening height of adjoining openings
shall not exceed 84".
Double stud members and larger members shown in
tables are assumed to be located between openings or at
sides of openings. Single stud members shown in tables
shall not be used between openings.
VERSA-STUD ® 1.7 2650 Wall Guide - Eastern UNITED STATES 11/07/2008 r 07/21/2011
Load Combinations
The allowable design loads shown in this guide are based
upon load combination equations for allowable stress
design (IBC 06 Section 1605.3.1). Specifically for wall
applications:
1. roof dead load + roof live or snow load
2. roof dead load + 0.75 x (roof live or snow load +
wind load)
3. 0.6 x dead load + wind load
Since the chances are extremely remote that the
maximum roof live or snow load will be present at the
same time as a maximum wind load, the IBC allows for a
25% reduction in both loads when applied simultaneously
in load combination #2.
Code References
When calculating deflection from wind, the design wind
load is determined by multiplying the Components &
Cladding pressure by 0.7 (IBC 06 Table 1604.3, footnote f
& IRC 06 Table R301.7, footnote a).
Wall Deflection
5
Deflection of individual wall studs is calculated similar to that of joists and beams. The stud height, on-center spacing
and stiffness determine the deflection from a design wind load. Below are the building code deflection limit provisions
dependent upon the wall coverings.

Wall stud deflection may occur both into the structure
(positive pressure) or out from the structure (negative
pressure). Thus, the total amount of possible movement
is actually almost twice the deflection value shown in the
design tables (see detail below). As shown in the table
above, using the code minimum L/120 limit for 20' stud
height can result in a deflection of 2 inches. More restrictive
deflection limits may be used, similar to Boise Cascade’s
Three and Four Star Floor Performance tables
for BCI® Joists. The allowable load tables on pages
9-11 provide maximum loads for deflection limits
ranging from L/360 to L/120. For applications
where a tighter deflection limit is needed, the
stud may be designed using the BC COLUMN™
software. As is the case with floors, the deflection
of tall walls should be considered in the design
phase of the project.
In regards to brick veneer, though the IBC and IRC list a
deflection limit of L/240, the Brick Industry Assocation (BIA)
recommends designing studs to a defection limit of L/600 to
limit cracking of the veneer caused by excessive deflection. Such designs may be analyzed using BC COLUMN™
software.

Deflection criteria is used to limit serviceability issues such
as doors and windows binding, cracking of exterior and
interior surface materials, perceived sounds due to wall
movement, glass breaking, wall vibration and movement
when pushed on. Wind produces pressure and suction loads
on a wall producing deflection inward and outward. Vibration
of walls can occur with high span/depth ratios much like a
floor joist where depth equals the wall thickness. For further
information on wall vibration, please contact Boise Cascade

Determining Wind Load
In some areas the design wind load, in units of psf [lb/ft2],
is provided for residential construction by the local building
code jurisdiction. For example, the State of Wisconsin
Uniform Dwelling Code mandates a 20 psf design wind load.
Please refer to the local building code department for such
information.
(see IRC 301.2.1.4 for complete definitions):
For areas that do not provide a wind load or for nonresidential projects, the wind load may be determined by
using the basic wind speed, in units of mph or miles per hour.
The wind speed is then converted into a design wind load
by calculating all the necessary factors required by ASCE 7,
per the IRC and IBC codes. These factors are dependent
on the site location of the project and the dimensions of
the structure. Typically, the project’s design professional of
record performs this analysis. The following is an overview
of this procedure:
- Exposure D: Flat, unobstructed areas exposed to wind
over open water (excluding shorelines in hurricane prone
regions) for a distance of at least 1 mile.
1.
2.
- Exposure B: Urban and suburban (subdivision) areas,
forest land.
- Exposure C: Open terrain with scattered obstructions
less than 30 feet tall extending more than 1500 feet from
the site in any direction.
3.
the tributary area, see Effective Wind Area in Wind
Load Definitions, page 7.
4.
are provided in the IRC & IBC. The majority of the inland
U.S. has a wind speed of 90 mph. However, basic wind
speeds up to 150 mph are required in coastal areas. In
addition, special wind region areas exist where the wind
speed is higher. Consult with the local building code
jurisdiction for the site’s design wind speed.
5.
Determine the project’s exposure category:
6.
- Topographical Factor: 1.0 for most structures, higher for
buildings on hills or ridges.
Determine mean roof height: The distance
between grade and a midpoint height between the eave
and ridge.
The exposure of the site will affect the wind load;
wind pressure will be less within a subdivision versus
a structure near a body of water. For wood-frame
buildings, the three exposure categories are defined

Wind Load Definitions
ASCE 7: A design standard published by the American
Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) that is referenced
by the International Building Code (IBC). ASCE 7 –
Minimum Design Loads for Buildings and Other Structures
establishes the live, snow, seismic and wind loads for the
building code.
Components and Cladding (CC): Structural
components that do not qualify on their own as a MWFRS
(see below). An individual wall stud is an example of a
CC element.
Effective Wind Area: A factor used to calculate the
wind load on a stud or column. The effective wind area is
the greater value of the following two equations:
1. the square of the stud height divided by 3 or L2/3 (see adjacent
value table) or
2. the stud height multiplied by the tributary width (or o.c. spacing
for studs).

Exposure Category: A factor used to calculate the
design wind load (pressure) that accounts for the type of
terrain surrounding the structure in question. The wind
pressure will be less within a housing development versus a
structure near a body of water. The following is summary of
the exposure categories:
B = Urban and suburban (subdivision) areas,
forest land
C = Open land with scattered obstructions of heights
less than 30 feet
D = Flat unobstructed areas and water surfaces

In-Plane Loading: Lateral loads applied along the
length of the wall are referred to as in-plane loading (see
detail below). Wind loading applied parallel to the wall
length must be determined by the design professional of
record. Bracing, braced wall panels and tie-down anchors
at corners shall be determined by design professional of
record and be in accordance with applicable building code
Main Wind Force-Resisting System (MWFRS):
A classification of structural components. MWFRS
generally refers to a system of elements that receives wind
loading from more than one surface of the structure. An
example of a MWFRS is an exterior wood shear wall. The
shear wall receives seismic and wind load along its length
(in-plane loading) and wind load perpendicular to its surface
(out-of-plane loading).
Out-of-Plane Loading: Wind loading perpendicular
to the wall length (see detail below). Tables shown in this
guide are based on out-of-plane loading only.
Wind Speed: The value established by the building
code or local building department which is then used, along
with other factors, to determine the wind load. Wind Speed
in ASCE 7 is now based upon a 3 second gust, determined
by meteorological data and statistical analysis. Wind speed
is provided in units of miles per hour (mph).
Wind Load: The design load used to size a stud or
column. The wind load is determined by taking the wind
speed and applying all the necessary factors per ASCE 7,
including the geometry of the structure, exposure, etc. In
some areas, the design wind load is provided for residential
construction by the building code jurisdiction. Wind load is
in units of pounds per square foot (psf).

VERSA-STUD® Wall Sheathing Nailing
Prescriptive Nailing
Shear Walls
Since VERSA-STUD® may be used in
prescriptive design in the IBC and IRC, it
may be installed as studs in braced wall
panels. Standard nailing for prescriptive
wood stud walls with structural sheathing
is 6d common nails for panels 5/16" to ½"
thick, 8d common nails for panels 19/32" to
1" thick, spaced at 6" on-center on panel
edges and 12" on-center
in intermediate studs.
VERSA-STUD® may be used in shear wall construction. Allowable shear

values may be determined by using Table 2306.4.1 of the IBC, shear
walls with Douglas fir-Larch framing, subject to the following conditions:
1. A double VERSA-STUD® must be used at all panel edges of shear
walls. Studs must be stitch-nailed together with two rows of 10d
common nails at 8" on-center, staggered.
2. Nails at panel edges must be staggered along two nailing lines
spaced approximately ½" apart. Nails at panel edges must also
be at least 3/8" from the edges of the VERSA-STUD ® and the wood
structural panel (see detail below).
3. The tabulated shear values for nailed wood structural panel shear
walls using 8d or 10d box or common nails at a panel edge
nailing of 2" must be multiplied
by a factor of 0.9.
4. The tabulated shear values
for nailed wood structural
