Aspects on reliability calibration of safety factors for timber structures

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Analyses and a discussion of the consequences for lightweight structures, typical wood frame or truss structures, when a change of the statistical description of random parameters in a reliability based code format is made without considering how the code once was derived is presented. The special case when the statistical description of variable load is altered, is described with and without considering the origin of the current safety indices.
