1.3  Terms and definitions
For the purpose of this Standard, the definitions below apply. 1.3.1 batch clearly identifiable collection of units, manufactured consecutively or continuously under the same conditions, using material or compound to the same specification 1.3.2 capacity design procedure design method in which elements of the primary lateral earthquake-force-resisting system are chosen, suitably designed and detailed for energy dissipation under severe deformations, to provide other structural elements with sufficient strength such that the chosen means of energy dissipation can be maintained 1.3.3 characteristic stiffness stiffness of a connector or accessory installed in substrate Note 1 to entry: Methods of determining characteristic stiffness are specified in the various tests prescribed in Appendix F. 1.3.4 characteristic strength strength of a connector or accessory installed in substrate Note 1 to entry: The method of determining characteristic strength is specified in Appendix F. 1.3.5 characteristic value value that is exceeded by at least 95 % of the components in the lot 1.3.6 connectors and accessories any components other than wall ties, lintels and shelf angles used in masonry construction to aid the structural integrity of the building or to provide support or stability to building finishes Note 1 to entry: Connectors and accessories are frequently referred to as “components” in this Standard (see Clause 1.1). 1.3.7 corrosivity category (C) standardized rating of corrosivity of atmosphere in relation to the one-year corrosion effect on steel and zinc Note 1 to entry: The classifications C1 to C5 and CX are individually defined by reference to corrosivity of the atmosphere according to ISO 9223 and AS 4312—2008 (see Appendix D). Note 2 to entry: A method for estimating corrosivity category is given in Appendix D.1.3.8 design life period for which the component is expected to fulfil its intended function Note 1 to entry: See Clause 1.3.6. 1.3.9 distributor any business entity that provides a point/source of supply of a component to the market 1.3.10 ductility ability of a structural element to sustain its load-carrying capacity when subjected to cyclic inelastic displacements during seismic activity1.3.11 durability class R identifies the level of corrosion protection provided to a connector or accessory to meet the performance condition for the design life of a structure Note 1 to entry: The classifications, R0 to R5, are individually defined by reference to exposure conditions given in AS 3700, AS 4773.1 and AS 4773.2. 1.3.12 factory production control FPC comprises operational techniques and all measures necessary to regulate and maintain the conformity of the product to the requirements of a Standard 1.3.13 galvanized coating protective zinc coating alloyed to the steel substrate and applied by hot-dip immersion in molten zinc of at least 98 % purity 1.3.14 lot group of connectors or accessories of a single type with specific characteristics and dimensions, presented for sampling at the same time 1.3.15 manufacturer business entity providing the total, substantive or final production/assembly process of the connector or accessory 1.3.16 manufacturing lot manufacturing batch quantity of components of a single type with specific characteristics and dimensions, processed through the same or similar steps at the same time or over a continuous time period from a process with FPC 1.3.17 manufacturing lot number unique alphanumeric code assigned by the component manufacturer to a manufacturing lot enabling its traceability throughout the entire production operation, including incoming materials control and all processes defined in the FPC 1.3.18 masonry couplet two stack-bonded masonry units joined by a bed of mortar or adhesive, as appropriate1.3.22 residual load load resisted by a specimen after several cycles of displacement applied during the seismic loading test Note 1 to entry: The seismic test is specified in Appendix F. 1.3.23 sample one of more units of product drawn from a batch or lot, selected at random without regard to quality Note 1 to entry: The number of units of product in the sample is the sample size. 1.3.24 shall indicates that a statement is mandatory 1.3.25 should indicates a recommendation 1.3.26 specimen specially prepared item for testing, consisting of single or multiple connectors or accessories embedded in a masonry unit or a masonry couplet, possibly affixed to a length of timber or metal stud, or embedded in another masonry unit or couplet, to simulate the various service condition or, where more than one type of service condition applies, the most demanding
