The First Order Reliability slabs, have been evaluated over the practical range of thicknesses 100mm to 250mm. The First Order Reliability slabs, have been evaluated over the practical range of thicknesses 100mm to 250mm. The First Order Reliability Method was e Method was e Method was e Method was employed in the evaluation procedure for continuous slabs of equal spans as a case study. Results mployed in the evaluation procedure for continuous slabs of equal spans as a case study. Results mployed in the evaluation procedure for continuous slabs of equal spans as a case study. Results mployed in the evaluation procedure for continuous slabs of equal spans as a case study. Results indicate that the safety margins proposed and associated with the probability of failure (given as 1 x 10 indicate that the safety margins proposed and associated with the probability of failure (given as 1 x 10 indicate that the safety margins proposed and associated with the probability of failure (given as 1 x 10 indicate that the safety margins proposed and associated with the probability of failure (given as 1 x 10 reinforced concrete slabs, in the Brit reinforced concrete slabs, in the Brit reinforced concrete slabs, in the Brit reinforced concrete slabs, in the British [CP110; BS8110] and European [EC2] codes for design are not achieved at ish [CP110; BS8110] and European [EC2] codes for design are not achieved at ish [CP110; BS8110] and European [EC2] codes for design are not achieved at ish [CP110; BS8110] and European [EC2] codes for design are not achieved at all. Also, the reliability levels are not uniform. Thus, the current design formulations are not as safe and reliable as all. Also, the reliability levels are not uniform. Thus, the current design formulations are not as safe and reliable as all. Also, the reliability levels are not uniform. Thus, the current design formulations are not as safe and reliable as all. Also, the reliability levels are not uniform. Thus, the current design formulations are not as safe and reliable as predicted. This is because the intrinsic probability of predicted. This is because the intrinsic probability of predicted. This is because the intrinsic probability of predicted. This is because the intrinsic probability of corresponds to an implied safety level of 2.015. Therefore, the design formulations in these codes need a review so corresponds to an implied safety level of 2.015. Therefore, the design formulations in these codes need a review so corresponds to an implied safety level of 2.015. Therefore, the design formulations in these codes need a review so corresponds to an implied safety level of 2.015. Therefore, the design formulations in these codes need a review so that they can at least meet the target for approved structural safety as prescribed that they can at least meet the target for approved structural safety as prescribed that they can at least meet the target for approved structural safety as prescribed that they can at least meet the target for approved structural safety as prescribed Structural Safety.
