RE: Football Goal Post Foundation

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I've never designed a foundation for goal posts - but I would recommend
that you consider the fact that goal posts are often pulled down by fans
after a big game. This should be considered in the foundation design as
well as the detailing, to permit easy replacement.

	Subject: Football Goal Post Foundation
	Has anyone previously designed the subject item? If so, any
suggestions or issues to be concerned with? My intent is to use the same
concrete drilled shaft design methodology used for flag poles, parking
lot lights, or highway high mast lights/overhead signs. If you have had
prior experience, did the goal post vendor supply the base reactions?
