## What is the difference between Nscp 2010 and 2015?

A paired-samples t-test was conducted to compare NSCP 2010 and NSCP 2015 designs. t Stat is greater than t critical. Therefore, there was a significant difference in the NSCP 2010 (mean = 542.74, SD = 688.23) and NSCP 2015 (mean = 524.60, SD = 682.18); t = 4.40, P = 0.0000115.

**What is service load combination?**

When allowable stress design (working stress design) is used, the following are the load combination to consider. This is also known as service load combinations. D : (12-7) D + L + (Lr or S) : (12-8) D + (W or E/1.4) :(12-9)

**What is Nscp code?**

… the National Structural Code of the Philippines (NSCP, 2015) is the primary design code in the country, providing guidance to civil and structural engineers on the design and assessment of buildings and any other structures since its first edition in 1972. Table 1 shows the history of the NSCP.

### Where is Nscp based?

**Which load combination is correct?**

Explanation: For limit state of strength, the load combination is 1.5(DL+LL), for limit state of serviceability, the load combination is 1.0(DL+LL), where DL=Dead load, LL=imposed load.

**What is architectural code of the Philippines?**

AN ACT PROVIDING FOR A MORE RESPONSIVE AND COMPREHENSIVE REGULATION FOR THE REGISTRATION, LICENSING AND PRACTICE OF ARCHITECTURE, REPEALING FOR THE PURPOSE REPUBLIC ACT NO. 545, AS AMENDED, OTHERWISE KNOWN AS “AN ACT TO REGULATE THE PRACTICE OF ARCHITECTURE IN THE PHILIPPINES,” AND FOR OTHER PURPOSES.

## What is structural code?

Structural code means the specialty code prescribing structural standards for building con- struction.

**Why is Nscp important?**

Developed by the Association of Structural Engineers of the Philippines (ASEP), the NSCP is cited as a “referral code” of the NBC — the primary basis for the construction, design, use, and maintenance of all buildings in the country — since the latter does not specify standards for earthquake-resilient structures.

**What are the load combinations according to ASCE 7 10?**

LOAD COMBINATIONS according to ASCE7-10 According to ASCE7-10 section 2.3.2, buildings and other structures, components, and foundation shall be designed so that their design strength equals or exceeds the effects of the factored loads in the following combinations. These are also known as ultimate load combinations: 1.4D

### What are special seismic load combinations?

This is also known as service load combinations. Special Seismic Load Combinations has to consider as well for both allowable stress design and strength design in accordance to UBC-97 section 1612.4 as follows:

**How to determine the appropriate design load combinations for a project?**

After establishing the design loads of the proposed project, the next thing to consider is to determine the appropriate design load combinations. Generally, load combination is composed of individual loads, i.e. dead load superimposed dead loads and live loads that are combined together to come up for a strength design and allowable stress design.

**What are the specifications of NSCP purlins?**
