OS2 Structural Safety



Intent 1:

To limit the probability that counteracting loads due to soil, superimposed earth, plants and trees, which could be removed in the future, will be included in the design calculations, which could lead to structural failure, which could lead to harm to persons.

Intent 2:

To exempt from the application of this requirement counteracting dead load due to soil for structures that traditionally employ the dead load of soil to resist loadings.
