OS2 Structural Safety



Intent 1:

To limit the probability that liquefaction and its consequences (e.g. ground displacement, loss of soil strength and stiffness) will not be taken into account in the design of a structure and its foundations, which could lead to the excessive displacement of the building, which could lead to:

  • structural failure, or
  • severe damage to non-structural elements, which could lead to their subsequently falling.

This is to limit the probability of harm to persons.
