Fundamental Concepts of Load and Resistance Factor Design and Allowable Stress Design

OnDemand Webinar (89 minutes)

Understand the concepts of Load and Resistance Factor Design (LRFD) and Allowable Stress Design (ASD).Listen to a comprehensive discussion of the Load and Resistance Factor Design (LRFD) and the Allowable Stress Design (ASD). Basic concepts of the LRFD including background, development, statistics, and limit states are discussed in detail. The ASD approach including safety factors and loading conditions are presented. Main differences between the LRFD and the ASD methodology are identified and discussed in detail.
