Back4.1.6.4.(4)

ATTRIBUTION:

Functional Statement:

F20

To support and withstand expected loads and forces.

Objective:

OS2.1

 

APPLICATION:

Specified load due to the accumulation of rainwater on a roof or other building surface whose position, shape and deflection under rain load make such an accumulation possible, where scuppers are provided.
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 rain load used for the design of structural elements supporting roofs where scuppers are provided and on which rain can accumulate will not take into account the maximum expected accumulation of rainwater on a catchment area of roof, including an allowance for rain accumulation above the scupper level, which could lead to structural failure, which could lead to harm to persons.
To limit the probability that the one-day rainfall value used will not be compatible with the geographic characteristics by directing Code users to Sentence 1.1.3.1.(1) [], which could otherwise lead to structural failure, which could lead to harm to persons.

APPLICATION:

Specified load due to the accumulation of rainwater on a roof or other building surface whose position, shape and deflection under rain load make such an accumulation possible, where scuppers are provided.

INTENT:

To limit the probability that the rain load used for the design of structural elements supporting roofs where scuppers are provided and on which rain can accumulate will not take into account the maximum expected accumulation of rainwater on a catchment area of roof, including an allowance for rain accumulation above the scupper level, which could lead to the excessive deformation of, or excessive stress in, structural elements, which could lead to damage to the building.
