Join SEI Host Jennifer Goupil for a discussion about ASCE/SEI 72 Design of Steel Lighting System Support Pole Structures standard.
ASCE/SEI 72 Design of Steel Lighting System Support Pole Structures has been specifically written to unify the core body of best practice knowledge available in the structural engineering community and to provide public and private agencies, practicing engineers, installers, and facility owners a consistent roadmap for the safe specification, design, fabrication, installation, and ongoing maintenance of structural supports of this type. Lighting system support structures (primarily cold-formed single and multi-pole tubular steel structures) differ from buildings in many performance-related characteristics. But, like buildings, lighting systems support structures are a critical public safety issue if they are not properly specified, designed, fabricated, installed, and actively inspected and routinely maintained by competent professionals. Current practices related to support structures of this type have been inconsistently developed and even more inconsistently applied, rendering many of those practices confusing—and even worse, ill-advised. The catastrophic failure of dozens of lighting system support structures around the country and the removal from service of hundreds more as a precaution in view of faulty or incomplete specifications for design, fabrication, installation, or ongoing maintenance prompted several members of ASCE’s Structural Engineering Institute to begin development of this document in the interest of improving public safety related to these structures.
