The provisions of this chapter shall govern the structural design of buildings, structures and portions thereof regulated by this code. Exception: Buildings and structures located within the high-velocity hurricane zone shall comply with the provisions of Sections 1615 through 1626 , and, as applicable in flood hazard areas, Section 1612 . SECTION 1602 DEFINITIONS AND NOTATIONS 1602.1 Definitions. The following words and terms shall, for the purposes of this chapter, have the meanings shown herein. ALLOWABLE STRESS DESIGN. A method of proportioning structural members, such that elastically computed stresses produced in the members by nominal loads do not exceed specified allowable stresses (also called "working stress design"). BASE SHEAR. Total design lateral force or shear at the base. DEAD LOADS. The weight of materials of construction incorporated into the building, including but not limited to walls, floors, roofs, ceilings, stairways, built-in partitions, finishes, cladding and other similarly incorporated architectural and structural items, and the weight of fixed service equipment, such as cranes, plumbing stacks and risers, electrical feeders, heating, ventilating and air-

conditioning systems and automatic sprinkler systems. DESIGN STRENGTH. The product of the nominal strength and a resistance factor (or strength reduction factor). DIAPHRAGM. A horizontal or sloped system acting to transmit lateral forces to the vertical-resisting elements. When the term "diaphragm" is used, it shall include horizontal bracing systems.
