Design of Steel Pole Transmission Structures, ASCE Manual No. 72, provides a uniform basis for the design and fabrication of steel pole structures. This revised and updated version of the 1978 ASCE publication is necessary due to the many new manufacturing methods and improvements in design technology that have developed over the years. These changes are incorporated into the various sections of the manual. The volume begins with a discussion of the initial design considerations involved in such projects. It then goes on to explore such subjects as design methods, suitable materials, load tests, assembly and erection, quality assurance, and foundations. Included in this manual is a glossary of terms and an appendix with design examples.
