LRFD 2003 - Analysis of Retaining Walls (Support Structures)
introduces two types of design coefficients - coefficients modifying the load magnitude (Load factors) and coefficients reducing the soil resistance (Resistance factors).
Analysis based on LRFD 2003 - Input of partial coefficients for wall analysis
When checking individual cases of failure the program determines, whether the force or pressure acts favorably or not and then pre-multiplies the force by corresponding partial factor. The overall resistance of a structure against failure is in pre-multiplied by the corresponding resistance factor in the final verification.
In case of supporting structures, information about the applied design factors is listed in the analysis protocol.
