Abstract: Use of near-minimum values for conversion factors making further reduction for unforeseen conditions to indicate near-minimum factor of safety of 1-1/4 to 1-1/2; factors in strength and use can be combined into one frequency distribution that shows range of true factor of safety; most probable values of factor of safety in timber design are in range of 2 to 2-1/2.
