steel pole design

I am looking for examples of steel pole design.  I am designing steel poles to mount fm antennas to that will be mounted on top of towers.  My problem is I cannot find any examples anywhere on how to design steel poles. I am not sure if you just should check for failure due to bending.  If anyone knows of any examples on this subject I would appreciate any help.

thank you

RE: steel pole design

buns1...assuming you can create a moment connection, you would design the pole for bending.  Most poles mounted on top of towers to hold antennae achieve a moment connection by lapping the pole down a tower leg and using "U" brackets or similar.  The fastener design is then based on the couple from the moment created at the lap connection.
