The relation of the ultimate load to working load is an essential factor in any design consideration. To determine the margin of safety available, it is particularly important to be able to (1) calculate and predict the ultimate load; (2) take into account the effect of other conditions or factors likely to influence the strength during the life of the structure. This effect is sometimes accounted for by a partial safety factor. D.N. Nwokoye
