Loading, Analysis, and Design Criteria Related to the Installation, Alteration and Maintenance of Communication Structures
|Publication Date:||22 August 2016|
The scope of this Standard is limited to providing engineering criteria to evaluate strength and stability requirements related to the installation, alteration and maintenance of communication structures, based on construction loads as defined in a rigging plan prepared in accordance with the ANSI/ASSE A10.48 standard. Additionally, the scope includes design criteria for lifting devices and the generation of their load charts. The means and methods related to construction are not within the scope of this Standard.
This Standard provides criteria based upon both Load and Resistance Factor Design (LRFD) and Allowable Stress Design (ASD) methods.
Figures and drawings in this Standard are for illustration purposes only and are not intended to represent all potential aspects of construction.
