The strength and loading statistics used as a background to structural safety measures in design are commonly expressed by frequency distributions in mathematical form. This paper points out that the more relevant parts of frequency distributions-the lower tails of strength curves and the upper tails of loading curves-are in practice limited or truncated. The effects of this are illustrated by a bridge example, using a numerical procedure to deal with the non-mathematical frequency curves involved. The value of proof tests on structures and of controls over their loading is demonstrated.
