Back4.1.3.5.(5)

ATTRIBUTION:

Functional Statement:

F22

To limit movement under expected loads and forces.

Objective:

OS2.3, OS2.4

 

APPLICATION:

Design of the structural elements of buildings for lateral deflection due to earthquake load.
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 lateral deflection and distortion of the building structure due to the maximum expected seismic ground motions will damage or displace attached or adjacent components of the building, which could subsequently fall or slide, which could lead to harm to persons.

Objective:

OP2.3, OP2.4

 

APPLICATION:

Design of the structural elements of buildings for lateral deflection due to earthquake load.
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 lateral deflection and distortion of the building structure due to the maximum expected seismic ground motions will lead to:
  • damage to the building, or
  • the excessive deformation of, or excessive stress in, the building structure, which could lead to damage to the building, which could impede the intended use and occupancy of the building.
