This One Hour Continuing Educations Class explores how wind-induced vibration can affect the performance and strength of steel and aluminum light poles. This CEU is an approved AIA health, safety, and welfare (HSW) education unit. It is approved for Landscape Architects LACES credit, and accepted by the Illuminating Engineer’s Society for LC and EE continuing education.
Wind-Induced vibration can cause stress fractures and reduced performance of the pole which can cause luminaire failure, increased swaying, and knock-downs.
We will discuss the nature of Aelolian (harmonic) vibration, how it can be identified and the ways the effects of this vibration can be mitigated—both proactively and retroactively.
