Back4.1.1.3.(1)

ATTRIBUTION:

Functional Statement:

F20

To support and withstand expected loads and forces.

Objective:

OS2.1

 

APPLICATION:

Design with respect to structural capacity and structural integrity of buildings and their structural members and connections, including formwork and falsework used during construction.
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 loads and influences that may reasonably be anticipated during construction and during the expected service life of the building will produce forces that may exceed the capacities of the structure and its components, which could lead to structural failure, which could lead to harm to persons.
To limit the probability that an accident either during construction or during the expected service life of the building that results in local failure will, because of the lack of structural integrity, lead to widespread collapse, which could lead to harm to persons.
