Introduction The forces applied to a building must be transferred through the structural framework to the building foundation and the supporting ground. This applies to both vertical forces, caused by building self-weight and occupancy loads, and lateral forces, caused by wind and earthquake. To provide a stable structure, a complete and continuous load path is required from the point of application of the forces to the foundation. In accordance with the International Code Council, International Building Code (IBC)
