This standard is based on the principles of the Working Stress Design (WSD). In WSD the target component level is achieved by keeping the calculated stress for different load combinations equal to or lower than the maximum stress. The maximum permissible stress is defined by multiplication of the capacity, of the structural member with permissible usage factors.
