Description For years there has been a critical demand within the sign industry for a book on the structural engineering of signs. This comprehensive text more than meets that demand -- it exceeds it. Sign companies, structural engineers and public agencies charged with regulating building construction will all benefit from the detailed contents:

 

  • Engineering perspective, analysis, practices, history
  • Load calculations for signs exposed to all types of environmental conditions
  • Freestanding sign structures, load effects, resultants and columns
  • Connections, structural bolts and welds, column splices, base plates and anchor bolts
  • Footings for sign columns, soils, structural concrete, pier and spread footings
  • Internal sign cabinet frames, cantilever arms and torsion beams
  • Building signs, wall sign anchorage, wooden post signs
  • Computer aided engineering, spreadsheets, and finite element analysis
It also includes the fundamental mathematics for readers not already familiar with engineering calculations. This is the long-awaited book that will set the standard for sign engineering for decades to come. The author, a 15-year chief structural engineer for Young Electric Sign Co., presents more than 220 figures and 70 tables among his clear, detailed explanation. Engineering Sign Structures is the essential reference for every sign company, structural engineer and public agency involved in the analysis and design of sign structures.
