No specification action was taken in this regard. Canadian Standards Association CSAThe Canadian specifications were reviewed lhs-4 wind load provision for the strength and fatigue limit states.

Similarly, other fatigue loads and resistances have not been calibrated. The report includes the Research Report, which documents the entire research effort, and the Appendix A: Title Description Steel Protective Coating The element is for steel elements that have a protective coating such as paint, galvanization, or another top coat steel corrosion inhibitor.

There is evidence that fatigue problems persist for shorter poles. This incorporates the most recent design procedures into the LTS. This is beyond the research scope and could be a future research project to develop unified test methods. A bolts were used in all examples. Ready to take your reading offline? These examples address many of the typical systems in use today.


The element set presented within includes two element types, identified as national ancillary structure elements NASE and ancillary structure management elements ASME. Section 11 was extensively modified to include the most recent fatigue research. Chapter 2 – Findings. Survey Results Ltw-4 E: Conclusions and Suggested Research. Element Steel Anchor Rods Count National Ancillary Structure Elements Description Element defines all steel anchor rods extending from the foundation, and includes all washers and nuts.

Title Description Element No. Calibrating to existing designs appears to be reasonable. Lgs-4 work should be further extended for all structure types.

Again, this information is not repeated and will likely be kept current by the ACI. Variable definitions and nomenclature that are located in a consistent manner; 5. Do you enjoy reading reports from the Academies online for free?

The National Academies Press. Continue support for core element development. Finally, calibration is described in aashtk comprehensive appen- dix. However, there are currently no standardized test procedures to determine whether dampeners work or the degree to which they will decrease stress cycles. Calibration Report, initial work was conducted to combine work by Roy et al. This aastho the advantage that the user can readily observe the behavior aazhto with the geometry and design decisions.


Calibrate fatigue limit state Connor et al. New sections on fabrication, construction, inspection, and asset management; This keeps the wind loading unified with the most used U.

– Wind Speed Map

However, the trend is toward more formal. Section 17 articles are: An organization that has been reformatted so that all sections are consistent; 4. However, this was not a formal calibration.

Modification of stress concentration factor equation for fatigue Work by Roy et al. These specifications incorporate recent aasbto on fatigue resistance and fatigue loading for high-mast towers.

Follow-up Tasks More work may be required that is not necessarily research. Based on feedback from you, our users, we’ve made some improvements that make it easier than ever to read aastho of publications on our website.
