New Manual of Practice Examines the Design and Use of Wood Poles
May 14, 2019

The American Society of Civil Engineers’ (ASCE) new book, Wood Pole Structures for Electrical Transmission Lines, MOP 141, provides comprehensive knowledge of the principles and methods for the design and use of wood poles for overhead utility line structures. When designed utilizing consistent structural engineering principles, wood pole structures provide a more resilient and cost effective option than other more commonly used materials. This manual examines:

  • Structural configurations and pole applications;
  • Critical factors and design considerations;
  • Mechanical properties, applicable standards and specifications;
  • Wood pole foundations and anchoring;
  • Construction of wood pole structures; and
  • Inspection and maintenance of wood pole structures and lines.

MOP 141 will be valuable to engineers involved in utility, electrical, and structural engineering.
