SOME ASPECTS OF PARTIAL FACTORING IN GEOTECHNICS

Application of partial factors in geotechnical engineering is discussed and compared with the tradition used in structural engineering. The application of Eurocodes is illustrated with a simple, principle case. A conceptual interpretation of the partial factor format is given based upon a discussion about the possibilities and limitations of the format.
