Back4.1.8.13.(1)

ATTRIBUTION:

Functional Statement:

F22

To limit movement under expected loads and forces.

Objective:

OS2.3, OS2.4

 

APPLICATION:

Calculation of the lateral deflections of building structures due to 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 Seismic Force Resisting System of the building will not take into account the expected lateral deflection and distortion of the building structure due to maximum expected seismic ground motions, which could lead to damage to or displacement of attached or adjacent building elements, which could consequently fall or slide, which could lead to harm to persons.

OP2.3, OP2.4

 

APPLICATION:

Calculation of the lateral deflections of building structures due to 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 Seismic Force Resisting System of the building will not take into account the expected lateral deflection and distortion of the building structure due to maximum expected seismic ground motions, which could lead to the excessive deformation of the building structure, which could lead to:
  • damage to the building, or
  • damage to the building, which could impede the intended use and occupancy of the building.
