This Indian Standard (Part 3) (SecondRevision) was adopted by the Bureau ofIndian Standards on 13 November 1987,after the draft finalized by the StructuralSafety Sectional Committee had beenapproved by the Civil EngineeringDivision Council.
A building has to perform many functionssatisfactorily. Amongst these functionsare the utility of the building for theintended use and occupancy, structuralsafety, fire safety and compliance withhygienic, sanitation, ventilation anddaylight standards. The design of thebuilding is dependent upon the minimumrequirements prescribed for each of theabove functions. The minimumrequirements pertaining to the structuralsafety of buildings are being covered inloading codes by way of laying downminimum design loads which have to beassumed for dead loads, imposed loads,wind loads and other external loads, thestructure would be required to bear. Strictconformity to loading standards, it ishoped, will not only ensure the structuralsafety of the buildings and structureswhich are being designed andconstructed in the country and therebyreduce the hazards to life and propertycaused by unsafe structures, but alsoeliminate the wastage caused byassuming unnecessarily heavy loadingswithout proper assessment.
This standard was first published in 1957for the guidance of civil engineers,designers and architects associated withthe planning and design of buildings. Itincluded the provisions for the basicdesign load.% (dead loads, live loads,wind loads and seismic loads) to beassumed in the design of the buildings.In its first revision in 1964, the wind
