Code Servicing Panel on Rationalisation of y-Factors- Second Report to the Structural Codes Advisory Committee

1. The Panel is extremely conscious of the ongoing nature of the work necessary to put limit-state design using partial safety factors on a consistent and logical basis and of the amount of research that will be required to provide a sound basis for this. This second report is directed at offering some general recommendations to Code drafting committees when dealing with partial safety factors, suggest in guidelines for the experimental calibration of these on the lines of the suggestions made in paragraphs 4, 5, 6 and 7 of the first report*, and indicating subjects where further study and research is desirable.
