CCTV pole foundation design

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

Dear list:


I was asked to design a spread footing for a 30 foot standard Caltrans CCTV camera pole (tapered from 8 to 3 inches).  The project is at the port of Oakland and the poles have to be supported on spread footings, so I can’t use Caltrans standard design. 


I am not familiar with AASHTO or Caltrans sign design standards and am trying to find an appropriate table in ASCE7 to calculate the wind loads.  Is Table 6-21 is an appropriate table to get wind coefficient?  Also, does anybody know the weight of such pole to compare wind with seismic?


Let me know your thoughts.
