fib Bulletin 80 published

Date: 27/04/2017

fib Bulletin 80 “Partial factor methods for existing concrete structures” is now available to purchase from the fib international website.

Although the last decades reliability-based assessment of existing concrete structures has gained wide attention in the research field, a consistent reliability-based assessment framework and a practically applicable codified approach which is compatible with the Eurocodes and accessible for common structural engineering problems in everyday practice is currently missing. Hence, in this bulletin two different partial factor formats are elaborated, i.e. the Design Value Method (DVM) and the Adjusted Partial Factor Method (APFM), enabling the incorporation of specific reliability related aspects for existing structures. This bulletin provides a basis for decision making regarding the target safety level of existing structures.
