Abstract

The development of limit state codes and/or load and resistance factor design (LRFD) codes for the design and evaluation of bridges requires the knowledge of the target reliability level. The optimum safety level depends on the consequences of failure and cost of safety. Selection of the target reliability can be based on consideration of these two parameters. In this paper, the analysis is performed for ultimate limit states (ULS) and serviceability limit states (SLS). Primary and secondary components are considered. Serviceability limit states have a lower level of consequences of failure. Therefore, lower values of the target reliability index are selected for SLS than ULS.
