Back4.1.8.3.(2)

ATTRIBUTION:

Functional Statement:

F20

To support and withstand expected loads and forces.

Objective:

OS2.1

 

APPLICATION:

Transfer to the supporting ground of inertial forces generated in buildings during an earthquake.
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 design of the structure will not incorporate a systematic approach for transferring inertial forces generated in the more massive portions of the building (e.g. floor slabs) to the supporting ground, which could lead to structural failure, which could lead to harm to persons.

OP2.1, OP2.4

 

APPLICATION:

Transfer to the supporting ground of inertial forces generated in buildings during an earthquake.
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 design of the structure will not incorporate a systematic approach for transferring inertial forces generated in the more massive portions of the building (e.g. floor slabs) to the supporting ground, which could lead to:
  • the excessive deformation of, or excessive stress in, the structural elements, which could 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.
