Mr. Greenlaw: Thanks again. However, I believe I did not state my problem with better clarity. I have the sign post pole embedded in 5' dia X 12' deep concrete below grade. For this scenario, can I take advantage of sliding resistance available at the base of the concrete? In other words, can I subtract the sliding resistance from 'P' to calculate 'A' required? While it may be conservative to ignore the contribution from sliding resistance, neglecting it may make the solution overly conservative. Considering that the lateral resistance and the sliding resistance act on entirely different planes, I am surprised that UBC does not have a different set of formula for cases where sliding resistance can be taken advantage of. Raj.
