Abstract: This guide presents the proper procedures for the design, fabrication, inspection, testing, and installation of concrete poles. It outlines the information that a line designer should provide to the engineer who is designing the pole structure. It also suggests a suitable quality assurance program to ensure receipt of adequately designed and manufactured product. The guide addresses concrete poles that are spun or statically cast and that are prestressed, partially prestressed, or conventionally reinforced. This performance-oriented guide presents theories and methods that are generally recognized as good practice, but also allows for innovative and unique circumstances to be fully acceptable upon presentation of sufficient test data to demonstrate that proper performance can be achieved.
