Load Development is the discipline by which Architects, Designers, and Engineers analyze the structural integrity of a building with respect to the forces it must safely resist. Every structure is subject to loads, as a result of gravity, wind, earthquakes, or impact. In this class, we will explore the loads most commonly considered for a building. We will learn about load application types, design load classifications, and methods of load development. You will see how load development is essential to safe and sound building design, and proper material specification.
