Analysis According to LRFD
When performing analysis according to LRFD (Load Resistance Design Factor) we follow the theory of limit states.
The analysis according to LRFD introduces two types of design coefficients:
- coefficients modifying the load magnitude (Load factors)
- coefficients reducing the soil resistance (Resistance factors)
LRFD is implemented in the program to perform:
- Analysis of retaining walls (support structures)
- Analysis of spread foundations
- Slope stability analysis
LRFD introduces new types of design situations (Strength I, Service I, Extreme I).
