2.4.12 Assessment of Element Deficiencies
The result of the checks specified in Articles 3 through 10 will show whether or not the elements meet the requirements of the 1994 NEHRP Recommended Provisions as modified herein.
For those elements not meeting the specified acceptance criteria, the relative hazard or seriousness of the deficiencies shall be assessed. Deficiencies shall be ranked according to:
- Degrees of "overstress" (both total and seismic);
- Element importance in the load path; and
- Building, ductile and element stability.
