Chapter 7
Load and Resistance Factors

Excerpt

In this chapter, the load and resistance partial factors are calculated for the performance functions presented in Table 4-1 for a range of target reliability indices β. A summary of the probabilistic characteristics of strength and loads is given for each performance function based on the data provided in Chapter 5 under different subsections. A sensitivity analysis is also performed in some cases of the factors to changes of the probabilistic characteristics of variables. This chapter provides also an example of design according to the current practice but also to the equations derived in this report.
