A Civil Engineering Designer has to ensure that the structures and facilities he

designs are (i) fit for their purpose (ii) safe and (iii) economical and durable. Thus safety

at the design stage how safe a proposed design will actually be. There is, in fact, a

great deal of uncertainty about the many factors, which influence both safety and

a structure will be absolutely safe. All that the designer can ensure is that the risk of

consider a structural component (say, a beam) designed to carry a given nominal load.

Bending moments (B.M.) produced by loads are first computed. These are to be

compared with the resistance or strength (R.M.) of the beam. But the resistance (R.M.)

itself is not a fixed quantity, due to variations in material strengths that might occur

Similarly, the variation in the maximum loads and therefore load effects (such as

bending moment) which different structural elements (all nominally the same) might

encounter in their service life would have a distribution shown in (b). The uncertainty

here is both due to variability of the loads applied to the structure, and also due

defined as that value of resistance below which not more than a prescribed

percentage of test results may be expected to fall. (For example the characteristic

yield stress of steel is usually defined as that value of yield stress below which not more

than 5% of the test values may be expected to fall). In other words, this strength is

Similarly, the characteristic load is that value of the load, which has an

accepted probability of not being exceeded during the life span of the structure.

Characteristic load is therefore that load which will not be exceeded 95% of the time.

Design of Steel Structures Prof. S.R.Satish Kumar and Prof. A.R.Santha Kumar

Most structural designs are based on experience. If a similar design has been

built successfully elsewhere, there is no reason why a designer may not consider it

prudent to follow aspects of design that have proved successful, and adopt

standardised design rules. As the consequences of bad design can be catastrophic, the

methods can help in comparing alternative designs while minimising the risk of the

stresses to be computed correctly. In the Working Stress Method (WSM) of design, the

first attainment of yield stress of steel was generally taken to be the onset of failure as it

represents the point from which the actual behaviour will deviate from the analysis

results. Also, it was ensured that non-linearity and buckling effects were not present. It

was ensured that the stresses caused by the working loads are less than an allowable

combinations of loads. Some loads vary with time and this should be taken care of. It is

unnecessarily severe to consider the effects of all loads acting simultaneously with their

full design value, while maintaining the same factor of safety or safety factor. Using the

same factor of safety or safety factor when loads act in combination would result in

which accounts for the fact that the dead load, live load and wind load are all unlikely to

(Stress due to dead load + live load + wind) ≤ 1.33 times allowable stress.

In practice there are severe limitations to this approach. The major limitation

stems from the fact that yielding at any single point does not lead to failure. This means

that the actual factor of safety is generally different from the assumed factor of safety

and varies from structure to structure. There are also the consequences of material non-

linearity, non-linear behaviour of elements in the post-buckled state and the ability of the

steel components to tolerate high local stresses by yielding and redistributing the loads.

The elastic theory does not consider the larger safety factor for statically indeterminate

structures which exhibit redistribution of loads from one member to another before

collapse. These are addresses in a more rational way in Limit State Design.
