IBC requirements are:
Riser is a max of 7 3/4’’ and tread is a min of 10’’.
These stairs would meet code because they meet the IBC requirements.
An intentional, linear discontinuity in a structure or component, where cracking can occur in response to various forces so as to minimize or eliminate cracking elsewhere in the structure.
Used to relieve flexural stresses due to vertical movement of slab-on-grade applications that adjoin fixed foundation elements such as columns, building or machinery foundations, etc.
This one is isolating a sidewalk from a retaining wall.

Front End Loader
Is a heavy equipment machine that is primarily used to load material into or onto another type of machinery (dump truck, conveyor belt, feed-hopper, rail-car, etc.).
It differs from a backhoe in that it dose a much larger capacity with it and it dose not have a back bucket.
Width = 8’2’’
A common method of constructing interior walls and ceilings using panels made of gypsum plaster pressed between two thick sheets of paper, then kiln dried.
One Advantage of a heat pump is a more comfortable humidity level in the winter; not too dry.
One disadvantage of a heat pump is its inability to operate well at very low temperatures and thus requiring a back-up system.
The compressor pumps refrigerant to the coils. Here a fan cools and condenses the refrigerant to liquid. Air blown over the coils removes heat. Then it goes inside to the inside coils where it picks up heat energy form the air blowing across the coils and out comes cold air. The same is with heat but the reveres of flow of refrigerant.
Is a device used to condition and circulate air as part of a heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning ( HVAC ) system.
Air Handling Unit
A material used to reduce heat transfer or lose by conduction, radiation or convection and are employed in varying combinations to achieve the desired outcome.

Oriented Strand Board
A nonveneered panel composed of long shreds of wood fiver oriented in specific directions and bonded together under pressure.
1 ½’’ drain
Shower in framing
VTR allows the equalization of pressure of sanitary sewer lines interior and exterior of the building.
A wood panel composed of an odd number of layers of wood veneer bonded together under pressure.
Veneer= thin slices of wood that are glued onto core panels to produce flat panels.
Radian Barrier inhibit heat transfer by thermal radiation.
Solar energy is absorbed by a roof. When a radiant barrier is placed directly underneath the roofing material it reflects heat back toward the roof and away from the house.
This is #4 rebar which makes it ½’’.
The deformations makes it stick to the concert better.
Steep Roof Drainage
A channel that collects rainwater and snowmelt at the eave of a roof.
A vertical pipe for conducting water from a roof to a lower level.
A small precast block of concrete or plastic used to divert water at the bottom of a downspout.
Keeps from washing away soil.
Steep Roof Materials
A layer of waterproof material between roof sheathing and roofing.
It protect the roof sheathing and structure from moisture and penetration.

Used to refer to any material that resists diffusion of moisture through wall, ceiling and floor.
On Blanket insulation it is placed facing the outside.
An impervious membrane applied to the outside of a foundation to help prevent moisture from getting into the building.
This type was applied in liquid form.
A small opening whose purpose is to permit drainage of water that accumulates inside a building component or assembly.
Welded Wire Fabric
4’’ x 5’’
It consists of an upper and lower sash that slide vertically in separate grooves in the side jambs or in full-width metal weather stripping.
Casement windows open like doors. Like doors, either the left or right side is hinged (or, more accurately, pivoted), and the non-hinged side locks securely into place with latches. Window opens by means of some variation of a crank.
An awning window is a casement window that is hung horizontally, hinged on top, so that it swings outward.
