LRFD 2012 - 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).
These coefficients enter the analysis according to the selected.
When evaluating individual cases of failure, the program determines, whether the force or pressure acts favorably or unfavorably. It is then multiplied by the corresponding partial factor.
When performing the final verification the overall resistance of the structure against failure is multiplied by the corresponding resistance factor.
Analysis based on LRFD 2012 - input of partial factors for wall analysis
For support structures (walls), the information about the applied design factors are provided in the analysis protocol.
