Probabilistic Design: Partial Safety Factor System

Research output: Book/ReportBookCommunication


This chapter describes how partial safety factors can be used in design of vertical wall breakwaters and an example of a code format is presented. The partial safety factors are calibrated on a probabilistic basis. The code calibration process used to calibrate some of the partial safety factors in PROVERBS is described.
