Educator Session: Serviceability Considerations in Building Design [ES1]Two categories of limit states must be considered in the design of structures: strength and serviceability. Strength limit states control the safety of the structure and are well defined in building codes and specifications. Serviceability limit states define the functional performance of a structure. Serviceability limits states have few codified standards yet often control the successful design of a structure. Learn about serviceability considerations and design approaches from experts on the subject.
