Back4.1.5.10.(1)

ATTRIBUTION:

Functional Statement:

F20

To support and withstand expected loads and forces.

Objective:

OS2.1

 

APPLICATION:

Specified concentrated live loads due to use and occupancy for the design of structural elements supporting areas of floors or roofs.
This applies to buildings described in Sentence 1.3.3.2.(1) of Division A and to buildings to which Part 9 applies [see Sentence 1.3.3.3.(1) of Division A for application of Part 9] that are required to be designed in accordance with the requirements of Part 4.

INTENT:

To limit the probability that the live load due to use and occupancy, which is used for the structural design, will not take into account the maximum expected concentration of weight due to people and objects in a local area of floor or roof, which could lead to structural failure, which could lead to harm to persons.
To expand the application of Article 4.1.5.2. to the determination of concentrated loads for occupancies not listed in Table 4.1.5.10.

F22

To limit movement under expected loads and forces.

Objective:

OP2.1, OP2.4

 

APPLICATION:

Specified concentrated live loads due to use and occupancy for the design of structural elements supporting areas of floors or roofs.
This applies to buildings described in Sentence 1.3.3.2.(1) of Division A and to buildings to which Part 9 applies [see Sentence 1.3.3.3.(1) of Division A for application of Part 9] that are required to be designed in accordance with the requirements of Part 4.

INTENT:

To limit the probability that the live load due to use and occupancy, which is used for the structural design, will not take into account the maximum expected concentration of weight due to people and objects in a local area of floor or roof, which could lead to the excessive deformation of, or excessive stress in, structural components, which could lead to damage to the building.
To expand the application of Article 4.1.5.2. to the determination of concentrated loads for occupancies not listed in Table 4.1.5.10.
