This comprehensive text more than meets the demand within the sign industry for a book on the structural engineering of signs. Sign companies, structural engineers and public agencies charged with regulating building construction will all benefit from the detailed contents, which include: engineering perspectiev, analysis, practices and 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 belts; 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 and wooden post signs; computer aided engineering, spreadsheets and a finite element analysis.
