OS2 Structural Safety




Intent 1:

To limit the probability that the calculation of loads due to earthquake will not take into account the forces due to expected seismic torsional moment at any level of the building, taking into account eccentricities between the centre of mass and the centre of rigidity and their dynamic amplification, which could lead to structural failure, which could lead to harm to persons.

Intent 2:

To clarify that torsional effects are to be addressed concurrently with the static loads determined in Sentence

Intent 3:

To direct Code users to Sentence for the calculation of torsional loads.
