I am designing the footing for a light pole in a part. I need to calculate the moment from the wind pressure. I found the following formula online but do not have access to the AASHTO "Standard Specifications for Structural Supports for Highway Signs, Luminaires, and Traffic Signals" to check. Can someone please verify for me if this is correct:
Wind moment = (½ x circumference x wind pressure) x (pole height^2)/2
