Load Factor Design.
Concrete structures for piers and wharves may be proportioned using the Load
Resistance Factor Design (ultimate strength) method; however, they should be
checked for serviceability and construction loads. Load combinations are presented
in Table 3-6.
Service Load Design.
Timber structures for piers and wharves should be proportioned using the service
load combinations and allowable stresses. Concrete and steel structures may also
be designed using the above approach. The service load approach should also be
used for designing all foundations and for checking foundation stability. Load
combinations are presented in Table 3-7.
