AbstractOne of the principal aims of structural designers is to provide adequate safety for the various parts of a structure taking into account the loads, the function of each part and the consequences of its failure. Among elements having the same purpose it is usually desired that the safety should be uniform among them. Similarly, it is intended that structures in one city should be as safe as those in other cities across the country. Building codes and standards play a major role in determining to what degree those objectives are attained.
