Wind on Small Signs

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Fellow Engineers,

I have a client that wants me to check the wind loading on small signs (no parking, handicap, 18" x 12" type) and how high these signs can be placed on the pole. They are placed in a precast pyramid type base. I initially used ASCE 7-02 for solid signs and a 90mph wind, and followed the steps for these signs in ASCE 7-02. These signs are used in large parking lots that are totally open. Is this the correct path or is this too conservative?
