F20

To support and withstand expected loads and forces.

Objective:

OS2.2, OS2.3

 

APPLICATION:

Design capacity of foundations, in buildings to which Part 9 applies [see Sentence 1.3.3.3.(1) of Division A for application of Part 9], where the bearing capacity of soil that is within a distance of twice the footing width below the bearing surface of the footing is lower than the bearing capacity of the soil at the bearing surface of the footing.

INTENT:

To limit the probability that an excessive design capacity of foundations will lead to soil subsidence, which could lead to the cracking of foundations or building superstructures.
This is to limit the probability of compromised structural integrity, which could lead to:
  • structural failure, or
  • for environmental separators or elements supporting environmental separators, the displacement or failure of required environmental separation elements, which could lead to the deterioration of building elements.
This is to limit the probability of harm to persons.

APPLICATION:

Design capacity of foundations, in buildings to which Part 9 applies [see Sentence 1.3.3.3.(1) of Division A for application of Part 9], where the bearing capacity of soil that is within a distance of twice the footing width below the bearing surface of the footing is lower than the bearing capacity of the soil at the bearing surface of the footing.

INTENT:

To limit the probability that an excessive design capacity of foundations will lead to soil subsidence, which could lead to the cracking of foundations or building superstructures.
This is to limit the probability of compromised structural integrity, which could lead to:
  • structural failure,
  • for environmental separators or elements supporting environmental separators, the displacement or failure of required environmental separation elements, which could lead to the deterioration of building elements, which could lead to further compromised structural integrity, or
  • an inability to resist expected loads, which could lead to
    • excessive deformation or deflection of walls, or
    • excessive deflection or vibration of floors.
This is to limit the probability of:
  • the space being unsuitable for its intended use, or
  • damage to the building.

Objective:

OH1.1, OH1.2, OH1.3

 

APPLICATION:

Design capacity of foundations, in buildings to which Part 9 applies [see Sentence 1.3.3.3.(1) of Division A for application of Part 9], where the bearing capacity of soil that is within a distance of twice the footing width below the bearing surface of the footing is lower than the bearing capacity of the soil at the bearing surface of the footing.

INTENT:

To limit the probability that an excessive design capacity of foundations will lead to soil subsidence, which could lead to the cracking of foundations or building superstructures.
Where foundations support or are part of an environmental separator, this is to limit the probability of:
  • pollutant ingress (from the exterior or from adjacent interior space, including soil gas, combustion products from parking garages, and particulates),
  • precipitation ingress,
  • condensation, or
  • moisture ingress from the ground.
This is to limit the probability of:
  • an inadequate control of relative humidity or water accumulation,
  • the generation of pollutants from biological growth or from materials that become unstable on wetting, or
  • deterioration, which could lead to compromised integrity of elements supported by foundation walls.
This is to limit the probability of:
  • negative effects on the air quality of indoor spaces,
  • the inadequate thermal comfort of persons, and
  • contact with moisture.
This is to limit the probability of harm to persons.
