The Evaluation of Crack Control Safety Level for Concrete Members by Equivalent Guarantee Rate
This paper put forward a new concept named equivalent guarantee rate, which can be used to evaluate the crack control safety level in concrete design specification more conveniently. As a numerical example, the crack control safety level for civil buildings in GB 50010-2010 “Code for Design of Concrete Structures” is analysized by calculation of equivalent guarantee rate and fuzzy reliability index respectively. The rationality of equivalent guarantee rate is confirmed by comparing the calculation results of the equivalent guarantee rate and the fuzzy reliability index.
