F20

To support and withstand expected loads and forces.

F22

To limit movement under expected loads and forces.

F22

Objective:

OS2.1, OS2.5, OS2.5, OS2.3

 

APPLICATION:

Studs on each side of openings in walls, where openings are spanned by a lintel that is not more than 3 m long, in wood-frame constructions to which Section 9.23. applies [see Sentence 9.23.1.1.(1) for application of Section 9.23.].

INTENT:

To limit the probability that studs will not provide adequate support to lintels or will not have adequate capacity to transfer loads, which could lead to studs or lintels being unable to resist expected gravity and lateral loads.
This is to limit the probability of compromised structural integrity, which could lead to:
  • the structural collapse of wood-frame construction, or
  • where wood-frame construction supports or is part of an environmental separator, the excessive deformation, displacement or failure of required environmental separation elements, which could lead to deterioration, which could lead to further compromised structural integrity.
This is to limit the probability of harm to persons.

APPLICATION:

Studs on each side of openings in walls, where openings are spanned by a lintel that is not more than 3 m long, in wood-frame constructions to which Section 9.23. applies [see Sentence 9.23.1.1.(1) for application of Section 9.23.].

INTENT:

To limit the probability that studs will not provide adequate support to lintels or will not have adequate capacity to transfer loads, which could lead to studs or lintels being unable to resist expected gravity and lateral loads.
Where wood-frame construction supports or is part of an environmental separator, this is to limit the probability of the displacement or failure of required environmental separation elements, which could lead to:
  • condensation,
  • precipitation ingress,
  • excessive heat transfer,
  • pollutant ingress, or
  • compromised thermal performance of components intended to resist heat transfer.
This is to limit the probability of:
  • an inadequate control of temperatures of interior spaces, drafts, relative humidity or water accumulation,
  • the generation of pollutants from biological growth or from materials that become unstable on wetting, or
  • deterioration, which could lead to further compromised integrity of environmental separators.
This is to limit the probability of:
  • negative effects on the air quality of indoor spaces,
  • the inadequate thermal comfort of persons, and
  • contact with moisture.
This is to limit the probability of harm to persons.

For floors and constructions supporting floors, this is to limit the probability of:

  • for exterior floors or environmental separators supporting a floor, the excessive deformation, displacement or failure of required environmental separation elements, which could lead to deterioration, which could lead to further compromised structural integrity.
This is to limit the probability of excessive movement, vibration or deflection, which could lead to negative effects on the psychological well-being of persons.
