Stability of buildings Parts 1 and 2: General philosophy and framed bracing
Part 1 provides a definition of stability and looks at various forms of instability, highlighting the responsibility for design engineers. Describes actions in depth and explores stability systems including horizontal and vertical, how to accommodate movement, braced and unbraced, performance requirements and earthquake design. Deals with stability during construction, deterioration, alteration or change of use and also provides a designer checklist. Part 2 examines framed bracing, looking at the structural form, stiffness, force transfer and bracing angles used in vertical framed bracing. Covers analysis, design and specification.
