Notes:
Short Duration Load includes but is not limited to wind loads, live loads
Long Duration Load includes but is not limited to selfweight, superimposed permanent loads
Brittle Panels includes but is not limited to stones
Flexible Panels includes but is not limited to metal panels
Vertical and Horizontal Members are independent of material type as long as they are considered as façade elements
