Research Highlight - Static and Dynamic Earthquake Testing of Rainscreen Stucco Systems for B.C. Residential Wood-Frame Construction

Research Highlight

This 2003 study delivers a comparative evaluation of rainscreen and non-rainscreen stucco systems to determine if there is any significant change in earthquake performance through the introduction of the rainscreen cavity. It also assesses the ability of rainscreen stucco to withstand large earthquakes and suggests refinements to the design of rainscreen stucco systems for improved earthquake performance.
