Other Important Regulations/Guidelines The EU Construction Products Directive (CPD) aims to provide harmonised standards for the performance of building products throughout the EU. The CPD aims to ensure the free movement of ‘fit for purpose’ products within the EU. Eurocodes are a set of harmonised European Standards aiming to provide structural design guidance and to replace national standards within the EU. The European Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD) first brought into force in 2003 aims to improve the energy performance of building within the EU by providing minimum energy performance standards, the provision of an Energy Performance Certificate when a building is constructed, sold or rented and making provision for the inspection of boilers and air-conditioning systems.

0 9 2 . 10 S T RU CT U R AL FORC ES A force is any influence that produces a change in the shape or movement of a body. It is considered to be a vector quantity possessing both magnitude and direction, represented by an arrow whose length is proportional to the magnitude and whose orientation in space represents the direction. A single force acting on a rigid body may be regarded as acting anywhere along its line of action without altering the external effect of the force. Two or more forces may be related in the following ways: • Collinear forces occur along a straight line, the vector sum of which is the algebraic sum of the magnitudes of the forces, acting along the same line of action • Concurrent forces have lines of action intersecting at a common point, the vector sum of which is equivalent to and produces the same effect on a rigid body as the application of the vectors of the several forces • The parallelogram law states that the vector sum or resultant of two concurrent forces can be described by the diagonal of a parallelogram having adjacent sides that represent the two force vectors being added • In a similar manner, any single force can be resolved into two or more concurrent forces having a net effect on a rigid body equivalent to that of the initial force.

A building can be understood to be the physical embodiment of a number of systems and subsystems that must necessarily be related, coordinated and integrated with each other as well as with the three-dimensional form and spatial organisation of the building as a whole. 0 3 Structural System Roof Systems The structural system of a building is designed and constructed to support and transmit applied gravity and lateral loads safely to the ground without exceeding the allowable stresses in its members.
