Back4.1.6.3.(1)

ATTRIBUTION:

Functional Statement:

F20

To support and withstand expected loads and forces.

Objective:

OS2.1

 

APPLICATION:

Distribution of specified snow load stated in Sentence 4.1.6.2.(1) on roofs or other building surfaces subject to snow accumulation, for the design of structural elements of buildings.
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 distribution of snow load will not take into account the maximum expected snow accumulation over the whole span of structural elements supporting the roof, which could lead to high stresses in these elements, which could lead to structural failure, which could lead to harm to persons.

APPLICATION:

Distribution of specified snow load stated in Sentence 4.1.6.2.(1) on roofs or other building surfaces subject to snow accumulation, for the design of structural elements of buildings.
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 distribution of snow load will not take into account the maximum expected snow accumulation over the whole span of structural elements supporting the roof, which could lead to high stresses in these elements, which could lead to the excessive deformation of, or excessive stress in, the structural elements, which could lead to damage to the building.
