This is interesting to me.


Can you give a general idea of the approach?

NAAMM FP 1001, "Guide Specifications for Design of Metal Flagpoles." is one of the referenced methods in MasterSpec for flag pole design so you might want take a look at that...

Here’s what I got.


A flag pole wants to be installed on top of a Structure.  I want to make sure that the flag pole on hand is capable of the loading.  Therefore, I need to know how to calculate the wind load on the waving banner.  Is there a spec out there, or can someone point me in the right direction, as to a design procedure for this.  I’d appreciate it.
