OS2 Structural Safety



Intent 1:

To limit the probability that the interaction of non-structural and structural components of the building due to the maximum expected seismic deformations of the structure will 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.

Intent 2:

To direct Code users to Sentence for requirements related to stiff elements not considered part of the Seismic Force Resisting System.
