ATTRIBUTION:

Functional Statement:

F20

To support and withstand expected loads and forces.

Objective:

OS2.1, OS2.3, OS2.4

 

APPLICATION:

RdRo value of rigidly connected buildings, 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.

INTENT:

To limit the probability that the design of the connection between buildings will not take into account the behaviour of the connected buildings as a whole, which could lead to the structural failure of the connection, which could lead to the impact of adjacent structures, which could lead:
  • structural failure, or
  • severe damage to non-structural elements, which could lead to their subsequently falling.
This is to limit the probability of harm to persons.

To limit the probability that the design of the connection between buildings will not take into account the behaviour of the connected buildings as a whole, which could lead to the structural failure of the connection, which could lead to the impact of adjacent structures, which could lead to:
  • damage to the building, or
  • damage to the building, which could impede the intended use and occupancy of the building.
