General Notes – Structural – Basis of Design

Basis of Design

  1. Design wind loading:
    Region = A1
    Basic wind speeds
    – Ultimate Vu = 45 m/s
    NB: Other wind loading parameters vary with direction and distance from building, refer to design-report and evidence-of-suitability for: shielding, topography and terrain.
  2. Design live loading
    Roof = 0.25 kPa
  3. A maximum allowable bearing pressure of 100 kPa has been assumed for CLAY soils and 50 kPa for SANDS. Confirm the foundation material prior to placing concrete.
  4. Footings shall be placed centrally under walls and columns uno.
