The overall safety factor for earth retaining structures has been reduced from 1. On the one hand, is there any evidence that a safety factor of around 1. Physical Description xii, p.
The new concrete code – is it all it’s cracked up to be?
These increases in cover and the richness of mixes for indoor work will substantially increase costs of buildings – sample designs suggest that plain continuous slabs designed to BS will actually be heavier and more costly than designs to the current CP, despite the lack of durability problems in the latter.
Despite its substantial improvements cncrete presentation, cocrete omens are not promising. Reinforced concrete design to CP The recommendations given in this clause are potentially extremely dangerous.
It is widely accepted that CP did not live up to expectations, earning a reputation of being cumbersome to use and requiring over- complex calculations for simple problems. Cement and Concrete Association, For evidence of this, one need look no further than the sorry case of CP , which was introduced as a new Code in and withdrawn inwhile the predecessor it was meant to replace, CP , is still in use today.
Separate different tags with a comma. Perhaps before we rush to write computer programs, books or Eurocodes – or to withdraw CP – we should try to resolve at least some of the problems in BS In practice, earth pressures tend to be among the least well- defined of all the loads considered by the designer – is it logical to give them the lowest safety factor?
Conversely, where stress is due to combined dead and wind loads, the required safety factor has been increased from 1.
What is the point in saying design may be based on statistical methods when it is clearly not possible? Durability is an area where great advances have been claimed.

In this method, design is based on calculating reduced strengths of sections in a fire. Part 2 has its flaws too: Also conncrete to a recent paper  the recommendations for designing shear reinforcement in flat slabs could result in insufficient links in some situations. Tags What are tags?
