Partial safety factors for actions on building structures

Table 2.2: Partial safety factors for actions in building structures for persistent and transient design situations

Safety Factor Steel Structures Eurocode
For accidental design situations the partial safety factor

for variable actions is equal to 1,0

(3) By adopting the g values given in table 2.2, the following simplified combinations may be used:

- considering only the most unfavourable variable action:

- considering all unfavourable variable actions:

whichever gives the larger value.

(4) Where favourable and unfavourable parts of a permanent action need to be considered as individual actions, the favourable part should be associated with and the unfavourable part with gG,inf -gG,sup -

Geotechnical Safety Factors

(2)P When verifying the stability in the case of accidental actions, gM for masonry shall be taken as 1,2 , 1,5 and 1,8

for categories A, B and C of levels of execution respectively gM for anchorage and tensile and compressive resistance of wall ties and straps, and for anchorage bond of reinforcing steel, shall be taken as given in table 2.3

and gs for steel shall be taken as 1,0
