Load and Resistance Factor Design“LRFD” for Shafts

Geotechnical PerspectiveJim Cuthbertson


LRFD Shaft Design

  • First we have to review the basic principals upon which LRFD is based

  • You Geotechs may recall the following:


 2 x 2 = 5


LRFD Shaft Design

  • First Step Field Exploration

    • WSDOT Policy

      • BR Curb to Curb width < 100 ft wide

        • one geotechnical boring per pier minimum

      • BR Curb to Curb width > 100 ft wide

        • Two geotechnical borings per pier minimum

      • Depth of investigation should extend below the anticipated shaft tip elevation a minimum of 20 feet, or a minimum of two times the maximum group dimension, whichever is deeper.


LRFD Shaft Design Cohesive Soil

  • No Change from LFD to LRFD


LRFD Shaft Design Non-Cohesive Soil

  • No Change from LFD to LRFD


LRFD Shaft Design

  • So What Changed??  OLD LFD


LRFD Shaft Design

  • So What Changed??  New LRFD

LRFD Shaft Design

  • If resistance factors were safety factors where would we stand

  • 0.45  2.22

  • 0.50  2.00

  • 0.55  1.82

  • This seems like we are designing our shafts with less “safety” than we were before with SF of 2.5 to 3. Remember there is a load side of the equation too, and those loads have been increased by Load Factors! Overall, right now we are just as safe as past practice
