Back4.1.8.16.(2)

ATTRIBUTION:

Functional Statement:

F20

To support and withstand expected loads and forces.

Objective:

OS2.2, OS2.4

 

APPLICATION:

Design of foundations of buildings to transfer earthquake loads and effects.
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 capacity of the soil and rock on which the foundation rests will be exceeded during the seismic design ground motion, which could lead to the excessive displacement of the building, 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.
