CONCRETE POLES

THE MOST COMMON USAGE OF POLES ARE TRANSMISSION LINES AND SIGN POLES. UNDER CERTAIN CONDITIONS PILES SUCH AS SOLDIER PILES FOR THE PROTECTION OF EXCAVATIONS, CAPPED PILE ABUTMENTS WHERE THE PILING ALSO ACTS AS A BACKWALL, AND STABILIZATION PILES FOR EMBANKMENT SLOPES, CAN BE ANALYZED AS POLES. THE DESIGN OF THE INSTALLATION IS DETERMINED BY EXTERNAL LOADS AND SOIL CHARACTERISTICS. THIS SPECIFICATION OFFERS A DESIGN PROCEDURE WHICH WILL DETERMINE THE REQUIRED EMBEDMENT. DESIGN AND PLACEMENT ARE DESCRIBED. WHEN THE EMBEDMENT OF A TRANSMISSION POLE IS DESIRED, THE POLE MUST BE DESIGNED FOR GRAVITY LOADS PLUS WIND AND ICE LOADS WITHOUT REGARD TO THE POSSIBILITY OF ANY BROKEN WIRES. EQUATIONS ARE PRESENTED WHICH MAY BE USED TO DETERMINE THE REQUIRED DEPTH OF EMBEDMENT AND WIDTH OF THE POLE.
