OP2 Structural Sufficiency of the Building



Intent 1:

To limit the probability that a system with a structural irregularity characterized by geometric or stiffness discontinuities or torsional sensitivity or gravity induced lateral demand irregularity will be used in post-disaster buildings in regions of moderate to high seismicity, which could lead to localized concentrations of inelastic deformation, which could lead to the excessive deformation of, or excessive stress in, the building structure, which could lead to damage to the building, which could impede the intended use and occupancy of the building.
