ASCE manual for Wood Pole

ASCE manual for Wood Pole

ASCE manual for Wood Pole

Wondering if there's a ASCE manual for wood pole design, something like ASCE 10 for lattice towers ...

RE: ASCE manual for Wood Pole

I don't think ASCE has one. The NESC code talks a lot about wood poles and ANSI O5.1 has properties and strength requirements. There are some RUS/REA documents you could look at. If you have PLS-CADD and PLS-POLE, they analyze poles and have decent users manuals with some references.

IIRC ASCE 10 is in final review for publication by the committee. ASCE 74 is currently in a revision trying to decide which wind maps will be used.


I have been called "A storehouse of worthless information" many times.

RE: ASCE manual for Wood Pole

I believe that AASHTO poles code has a chapter dealing with wood poles.

RE: ASCE manual for Wood Pole

ASCE 111

RE: ASCE manual for Wood Pole

Good find. I had forgotten about that document. I recall seeing a presentation about it at a conference.
