Reliability-Based Design of Utility Pole Structures provides state-of the-art technical information on the design of utility pole structures. Among other useful features, this manual demonstrates how poles differing in material can be designed to equivalent reliability levels, provides means for quantifying adjusting reliability, offers design incentives for more reliable poles, and facilitates innovation and introduction of new material. With its technically innovative subject matter and detailed design examples, this manual will benefit pole manufacturers as well as electrical, structural, and transmission and distribution engineers.
