However, differences will occur due to varying ASD and LRFD load factors and under certain load combinations. It should be noted that this practice (of calibrating LRFD to historically acceptable design) was also used by the other major building materials. , Rwind) set by underlying product standards. 80 for wind and seismic design was chosen by both the ASTM and the SDPWS consensus committees because the added complexity of utilizing two separate factors was not warranted given the small relative difference in calibrations.
