2.3 Design


• The poles shall be round-conical with a gradual and constant taper.


• Longitudinal welding should be kept to a minimum depending on the fabrication process. Circumferential welding not allowed for shafts assemblies.


• The design will preferably uses non-linear analysis and follows the guidelines and principles described in ASCE manuals and Report on Engineering Practice n° 72 and ASCE(SE) 48-05


· Pole shafts shall be one piece to the maximum length possible within shipping and/or fabrication limitations. Pole shafts exceeding limitations shall be designed in several sections.


Adjacent sections shall be joined by slip joints. Poles shall be designed with a minimum number of joints. Slip joints shall be designed for a minimum overlap of 1- 1/2 times the inside diameter of the female section at the joint, as per ASCE "Report No 72, Design of Steel Transmission Pole Structures" and ASCE(SE) 48-05


· A removable plastic top cap to be fitted on the top of the pole shall be supplied.


· One brass nut will be positioned at the top of the pole and another brass nut at the ground level.


· Deflection limitation at service load shall be 4% of the height above ground.


· Top diameter limitation to be applied during the design is:


o minimum ..................................................... 200 mm


o maximum ..................................................... 240 mm


· Safety factor used for calculation shall be:


2.0………….for transversal loads


1.5 ………….for vertical loads.


· Poles shall be equipped by anchor base. Anchor base shall be designed to transfer the loads from the pole to the foundation. The base plate shall be welded to the pole at factory. The embedded length shall be determined by the anchor bolt design load and the ultimate bond stress for 3000 psi concrete (f c) as specified in the American Concrete Institute Building Code (ACI 318). Anchor bolts shall be delivered together with poles. One upper template per pole type and one lower template per pole (if required) shall be provided. Templates and anchor bolts will be furnished unassembled.


2.4 General standardization


2.4.1 Poles shall be designed for standardized range in the following load classes:


Class 1 2 3 4 5 6 7



20.0 16.5 13.4 10.7 8.5 6.7 5.3

All parts of poles shall be appropriately marked. All marking shall be indelible and clearly visible after galvanizing. Pieces which are part of a structure shall be marked with structure type number, followed by the proper assembly item and other identification marks.


2.11 Bituminous protection


An additional bituminous protection from anchor plate to +1.5 from ground level of pole may be required.146 Section VI. Employer’s Requirements
