OS2 Structural Safety



Intent 1:

To limit the probability of using inappropriate wind load assumptions, which could lead to the deflection, movement and deterioration of required environmental separation elements subject to wind load, which could lead to the failure of such elements, which could lead to the inadequate control of:

  • precipitation ingress due to air pressure differences,
  • condensation, or
  • the ingress of airborne moisture from the ground.

This is to limit the probability of compromised structural integrity of the separators or of elements protected by the separators, which could lead to structural failure, which could lead to harm to persons.

Intent 2:

To expand the application of Article to wind loads on elements identified in Sentences and, with respect to the direct implications of non-compliance with the objectives of Structural Safety and Structural Sufficiency of the Building.
