Back4.1.8.16.(4)

ATTRIBUTION:

Functional Statement:

F20

To support and withstand expected loads and forces.

Objective:

OS2.1

 

APPLICATION:

Design of basement walls of buildings for earthquake, in seismic zones where IEFaSa (0.2) is equal to or greater than 0.35.
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 structural design of basement walls will not take into account the maximum expected seismic lateral pressure from backfill or natural ground, which could lead to structural failure, which could lead to harm to persons.

APPLICATION:

Design of basement walls of buildings for earthquake, in seismic zones where IEFaSa (0.2) is equal to or greater than 0.35.
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 structural design of basement walls will not take into account the maximum expected seismic lateral pressure from backfill or natural ground, which could lead to the excessive deformation of, or excessive stress in, the structural elements, which could lead to damage to the building.
