Is there a 'standard' for the design of guyed stacks published by some organization? I am familar with wind pressures (25-33 lbs/sqft - 100mph) and wind loads (pressure x projeted area). I am less familar with accepted methods of calculating critical buckling loads, determining gauge thickness, effect of stiffeners, number of guys, etc. Are there inexpensive programs that use the equations of this 'standard' and my design requirements (height, diameter, wind speed, etc.) to select the minimum steel gage, number of guys, etc. I would appreciate any information. thanks harvey13
