The User's Guide - NBC 2010: Structural Commentaries (Part 4 of Division B) is intended to help Code users understand and apply the design requirements provided in Part 4 of Division B of the National Building Code (NBC).

The Structural Commentaries contain valuable background information and, in some cases, suggested approaches to certain design questions related to, for example, limit states design, snow loads, rain loads and design for seismic effects.

This new edition of the User's Guide reflects technical changes incorporated into the NBC 2010, and provides additional material on issues likely to be addressed in the next edition of the NBC. Topics addressed by the revised material include, among others, the intent of the post-disaster building classification, live loads due to use and occupancy, extensive material to support the changes related to design for earthquake and more detailed figures for snow loads on buildings.
