1603A.3 Structural Design Basis and Calculations
The application for the approval of construction documents that involves structural elements or components shall be accompanied by complete and accurate structural design computations, which shall comply with requirements prescribed by the enforcement agency:
- The computations shall be preceded by a detailed index.
- The computations including each major subsection shall be prefaced by a statement clearly and concisely outlining the basis for the structural design and indicating the manner in which the structure will resist the vertical loads and lateral forces.
- The computations shall be sufficiently complete to the extent that calculations for the individual structural members and connections can be readily interpreted.
