ATTRIBUTION:

Functional Statement:

F20

To support and withstand expected loads and forces.

Objective:

OS2.1, OS2.3, OS2.4

 

APPLICATION:

Design for earthquake of buildings with non-rigid or energy-dissipating connections.
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 building and the connection between adjacent structures will not take into account the interaction of adjacent structural systems during earthquake, which could lead to structural failure of the connection, which could lead to the impact of adjacent structures, which could lead to:
  • 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.
