Unformatted text preview: F. Limiting sound – done by using heavier glass with tighter tolerances. G. Resisting wind – selecting adequate windows to withstand the loads. H. Controlling movement – designing the building to be more rigid. I. Resisting fire – using the correct requirements for combustibility. 4. The forces that can move water are gravity, momentum, surface tension, and air pressure differences. Having outward sloping surfaces, specific joints, drip breaks, and pressure equalization camber respectively can stop these problems....
