To support and withstand expected loads and forces.

Determination of the design values of elastic *storey* shears, *storey* forces, member forces and deflections whose values are obtained from a Linear Dynamic Analysis,
to be used in the design of *buildings* for 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.

To limit the probability that the elastic storey shears,
storey forces, member forces and deflections resulting from a Linear Dynamic
Analysis will be proportioned in accordance with the design base shear, which
could lead to structural failure, which could lead to harm to persons.

To support and withstand expected loads and forces.

To limit movement under expected loads and forces.

Determination of the design values of elastic *storey* shears, *storey* forces, member forces and deflections whose values are obtained from a Linear Dynamic Analysis,
to be used in the design of *buildings* for 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.

To limit the probability that the elastic storey shears,
storey forces, member forces and deflections resulting from a Linear Dynamic
Analysis will be proportioned in accordance with the design base shear, 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.
