(1) Unless otherwise specified, for the verification of ultimate limit states of resistance, the combinations of actions to be considered should be the fundamental combinations, as defined
Note : Because most actions during execution cannot be assessed with great accuracy, in order to avoid apparent calculation accuracy, preference may be given to the "simplified verification for building structures" equations (without v|/ factors), in accordance with ENV 1991-1.
(2) The values of partial y factors for permanent actions are given in Table 9.2 of ENV 1991-1. Unless otherwise specified, the yQ factors for all variable actions should be taken equal to
(3) The values of \|/ factors are given in Table A. 1 (see A. 2). A. 1.2.3 Serviceability limit states
(1) Unless otherwise specified, for the verification of serviceability limit states, the combinations of actions to be considered should be the characteristic and the quasi-permanent combinations as defined in ENV 1991-1.
