FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
July 6, 2010
Reston, Va.― The American Society of Civil Engineers’ Structural Engineering Institute (ASCE/SEI) today announced it will conduct a public comment period on the professional standard, Design of Steel Transmission Pole Structures. The public comment period will be held from August 2, 2010 through September 17, 2010.
The original development of this standard, Design of Steel Transmission Pole Structures (ASCE 48-05) originally published in 2005, became the primary resource for electric transmission professionals in the design and manufacture of steel transmission pole structures.
The standard specifies requirements for designing, fabricating, testing and assembling cold-formed tubular members and connections used for developing steel electrical transmission pole structures. It applies to structure components that are expected to withhold heavy design loads during limiting conditions described within the standards such as yielding, buckling and fractures.
To participate in the public comment period, contact Lee Kusek, ASCE Codes & Standards Administrator at firstname.lastname@example.org or 703-295-6176. For more information on this standard or ASCE’s standards program, please contact Leikny Johnson at email@example.com or 703-295-6413.
Founded in 1996, the American Society of Civil Engineers’ Structural Engineering Institute (ASCE/SEI) involves all facets of the structural engineering community, including practicing engineers, research scientists, academics, technologists, material suppliers, contractors and owners. SEI is committed to advancing the structural engineering profession and rapidly responding to the emerging needs of the broad structural engineering community.
Founded in 1852, the American Society of Civil Engineers represents more than 144,000 civil engineers worldwide and is America’s oldest national engineering society. For more information, visit www.asce.org.
