The load path is simply the direction in which each consecutive load will pass through connected members. The sequence commences at the highest point of the structure working all the way down to the footing system, ultimately transferring the total load of the structure to the foundation.

## What is sequential construction?

While analyzing Tall structure in Conventional method the gravity loads are applied after modeling the whole structure. In actual practice the complete frames are constructed at various stages and the stability of frames varies accordingly. This methodology is known as construction sequential analysis.

A continuous load path is important because it helps redistribute outside pressures or forces caused by earthquakes and high winds, transferring these external forces from the frame to the foundation, which is securely anchored into the ground.

Primary loading generally includes the materials from which the structure was built, the occupants, their furniture, the direct influence of various typical weather conditions, as well as unique loading conditions experienced during construction, extreme weather and natural catastrophes.

### What is sequence of construction activity?

The major sequences of construction are marking, excavation, concreting, brick masonry, roof laying, flooring and finishing.

What is a sequence of work?

The work sequence is, not surprisingly, the order in which tasks are completed. Work sequence is also commonly referred to as the sequence of operations. Many tasks follow a logical order.

## How is load path calculated?

Load path calculation using U* index In a structure, the main portion of the load is transferred through the stiffest route. The U* index represents the internal stiffness of every point within the structure. Consequently, the line connecting the highest U* values is the main load path.

## What is a secondary load?

Secondary loads are those loads due to temperature changes, construction eccentricities, shrinkage of structural materials, settlement of foundations, or other such loads.

What are sequential activities?

Sequential activities are those that afford children the opportunity to follow a logical order or sequence, or to have a working plan. Sequential activities follow a logical order or sequence and involve steps in a working plan.
