Re: Flagpole Foundation

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

The CBC does not have detailed procedures for calculating wind loads on flags.  A good reference with pole/foundation details and design criteria are the National Association of Architectural Metal Manufacturers (NAAMM) documents; "Guide Specifications For Design of Metal Flagpoles" and "Metal Flagpole Manual".

Flagpole Foundation





When designing a foundation for a flag in accordance to 2001 California Building Code, how does one determine the effective projected wind area? Is there a standard design procedure?
 
Thanks.
