OP2 Structural Sufficiency of the Building



Intent 1:

To limit the probability that the live load for an area of floor or roof intended for two or more occupancies at different times, which is used for the structural design, will not take into account the maximum expected accumulation of weight due to people and objects for all of the intended occupancies, which could lead to:

  • the excessive deformation of, or excessive stress in, structural elements, which could lead to damage to the building, or
  • the excessive deflection or excessive vibration of structural elements, which could impede the intended use and occupancy of the building.
