Global inputs same for all regions are: EPA and Lighting Systems Understanding EPA and its benefits for lighting manufacturers and industrial operators is equally as important as the calculation itself. Custom Builds Available, Rentals and Sales. The parameters V, Kz, Kd, G, and Cd are random vari- ables, and the distribution function of wind pressure and the wind load statistics are required to determine appropri- ate probability-based load zashto load combination factors. How- ever, in coastal regions, the new maps incorporate better data, and the wind maps in some areas have changed.

Hydraulic Fold-over Mast The Minimum Beta plots represent the minimum indices over the four regions. Wind load statistics Ellingwood, Limit State Resistance Cov Tension member, limit-state yield 1.

The wind load factor is now 1. Wind speed and frequency can affect the stable and reliable nature of industrial light towers, antennas and mounted fixtures in outdoor locations.


For low-importance structures using year wind speedsthe reliability indices are lower, as intended. These problems were solved with the support of Mathcad Version 15a pop- ular computer utility program for engineering computations, and are available as a PDF in Appendix C.

Typical structures are assigned an MRI of years. Similarly, the Average Beta plots show the averages over the four regions.

Looking for other ways to read this?

The drag coefficient variable is considered to be a dimensionless constant, which can be calculated using the following formula: The description of ltz-5 implementation is provided next with the resulting reliability indices for each region.

Caution must be exercised in the selection of a design wind speed where the pole is to be installed in a special wind region as indicated by the wind map or in an area where wind speed prediction is limited such as: Linear interpolation between wind contours is permitted. Chapter 2 – Findings Aashtp 12 Share.

The hurricane wind speeds on the United States Gulf and Atlantic coasts are based on the results of a Monte Carlo simulation model described in Vickery and Waldhera and Vickery et al.

Failures where a structure cannot cross the travelway and that, consequently, are of lesser importance. Implementation For the four regions, the ASD reliability analyses require ltw-5 inputs.

Industrial Cord Reels and Tool Taps. Unfortunately, this book can’t be printed from the OpenBook. Islands and coastal areas outside the last contour shall use the last wind speed contour of the coastal area.


The nominal resistance to directly compare to the LRFD design is determined by increasing the design strength by the shape factor as: Table 26 summarizes this approach. Likewise, for the 1,year wind speed, MT2 is larger than 1.

Determining EPA Wind Load Specifications for Lights

At low wind moments gD2MD controls the designthere is no difference. Post Mount Light parts.

Also, you can type in a page number and press Enter to go directly to that page in the book. Radio Communication Towers and Equipment. This behavior is demonstrated in Figure 4, where the ratios are the average for the four regions.

Other appendices are available on the TRB website, including: Support failure could not cross travelway Roadway sign supports: The increases in wind speeds are nominally balanced in most locations of the coun- try with the decreased load factors that result in nominally the same wind pressures.

Sensitivity of the reliability index to load and resistance factors.
