A basis for defining partial load factors and expressions for load combinations is presented that could apply comprehensively to the limit-states design of buildings for all structural materials. This formulation has been developed by a working group of the Structural Division of the Institution and it is proposed that enabling clauses be included in the next revision of the loading code SABS 0160:1980. Methods are also recommended whereby the committees responsible for individual design codes for different structural materials may calibrate the expressions for the limit states of resistance in a consistent manner to achieve more uniform margins of structural safety.
