Back4.1.5.11.(1)

ATTRIBUTION:

Functional Statement:

F20

To support and withstand expected loads and forces.

Objective:

OS2.1

 

APPLICATION:

Specified horizontal loads for floor assemblies and other structural elements that support fixed seats in any building used for assembly occupancies accommodating large numbers of people at one time, such as grandstands, stadia and theatre balconies.
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 dynamic horizontal forces generated by human activities in assembly occupancies with fixed seats accommodating a large number of people will not be taken into account in the design of the supporting structure, which could lead to structural failure, which could lead to harm to persons.

APPLICATION:

Specified horizontal loads for floor assemblies and other structural elements that support fixed seats in any building used for assembly occupancies accommodating large numbers of people at one time, such as grandstands, stadia and theatre balconies.
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 dynamic horizontal forces generated by human activities in assembly occupancies with fixed seats accommodating a large number of people will not be taken into account in the design of the supporting structure, which could lead to the excessive deformation of, or excessive stress in, structural components, which could lead to damage to the building.
