AbstractThis report reflects to some extent the recent change of attitude towards structural safety or structural sufficiency. This change emphasizes the need for a more realistic treatment of what loads actually occur; this means collecting records of actual loads, taking samples and treating them to some extent in terms of "probability". It is not intended to discuss which extreme should be chosen or what value of probability of overload should be used but rather what values actually do occur and what are the sources of load, such as persons, property and storage.
