Actions (or effects) and resistance

Structural actions (or effects) and material properties

fThis analysis is strictly only valid for the partial factors given in EN 1997-1. Individual countries may change these factors in their National Annexes.

6.3.1 Design Approach 1

The philosophy of Eurocode 7's Design Approach 1 is to check the foundation's reliability in two stages.

First, partial factors are applied to actions (alone), while ground strengths and resistances are left unfactored. This is achieved by employing partial factors from Sets A1, M1, and R1 in what is termed 'Combination 1', as illustrated in Figure 6.9. The crosses on the diagram indicate that partial factors in Sets M1 and R1 are all 1.0 and hence ground strengths and
