Back4.1.4.1.(3)

ATTRIBUTION:

Functional Statement:

F20

To support and withstand expected loads and forces.

Objective:

OS2.1

 

APPLICATION:

Dead load due to partitions in areas of buildings where partitions other than permanent partitions are shown on the drawings, or where partitions might be added in the future.
This applies to buildings described in Sentence 1.3.3.2.(1) of Division A and buildings to which Part 9 applies [see Sentence 1.3.3.3.(1) of Division A] that are required to be designed to the requirements of Part 4.

INTENT:

To limit the probability that:
  • the dead load due to partitions not shown on the drawings, including temporary or future partitions, will not be taken into account in the structural design, and
  • the load allowance for the dead load due to partitions not shown on the drawings, including temporary or future partitions, will be less than the accepted minimum value.
This is to limit the probability of structural failure, which could lead to harm to persons.

Functional Statement:

F20

To support and withstand expected loads and forces.

F22

To limit movement under expected loads and forces.

Objective:

OP2.1, OP2.4

 

APPLICATION:

Dead load due to partitions in areas of buildings where partitions other than permanent partitions are shown on the drawings, or where partitions might be added in the future.
This applies to buildings described in Sentence 1.3.3.2.(1) of Division A and buildings to which Part 9 applies [see Sentence 1.3.3.3.(1) of Division A] that are required to be designed to the requirements of Part 4.

INTENT:

To limit the probability that:
  • the dead load due to partitions not shown on the drawings, including temporary or future partitions, will not be taken into account in the structural design, and
  • the load allowance for the dead load due to partitions not shown on the drawings, including temporary or future partitions, will be less than the accepted minimum value.
This is to limit the probability of:
  • excessive deformation of, or excessive stress in, structural components, which could lead to damage to the building, and
  • excessive deflection or excessive vibration of the building structure, which could impede the intended use and occupancy of the building.
