Load and resistance factor design (LRFD) is a method of proportioning structural components such that no applicable limit state is exceeded when the structure is subjected to all appropriate load combinations. This limit state design format provides a framework within which explicit and separate consideration is given to a number of distinct performance requirements. It gives the designer a clear picture of the key parameters that affect the strength of the material and the factors that contribute to the load effects on the member. The analysis and design of columns using a LRFD approach is given in this report to demonstrate the practicability of this design format.
