OP2 Structural Sufficiency of the Building


[F20,F22-OP2.3,OP2.4]Applies to portion of Code text: “Connections to the structure of elements and components listed in Table shall be designed to support the component or element for gravity loads, shall conform to the requirements of Sentence…”


Intent 1:

To limit the probability that the connections will not be designed to transfer the attachment forces, Vp, and the gravity loads arising from the components they support, which could lead to failure of the connection, which could lead to:

  • components of the building falling or sliding, which could lead to damage to the building, or
  • damage to and functional failure of a component's system, which could impede the intended use and occupancy of the building.
