Unformatted text preview: becomes m Ri Design R P = (532) Equation 532 gives the design capacity of a shaft for a specific site. If the bias Ri is replaced by the bias factor R , (which represents the average of the bias), then the design capacity is directly related to measured resistance (i.e. Davisson's capacity) and the LRFD fitting parameters , and . The / R ratio then represent the percentage of Davisson capacity is allowed for design for a given probability of failure. Obviously the higher the ratio fewer piles required and the better the method....
