DESIGN CRITERIA FOR THE NEW CONCRETE STRUCTURES CODE

Design criteria are the means by which the structural design objectives of serviceability, adequate strength and durability are translated into meaningful code design procedures. In recent years, probabilistic design criteria have been used as the basis for several international and national concrete codes. A limit states format with semi- probability design criteria has also been proposed for the new Australian concrete code, which is scheduled for publication in 1983. The present paper draws attention to some weaknesses in conventional probability- of- failure concepts, and presents some simple recommendations for design criteria for the new concrete code (A).
