    Hi all,
    Can you refer me to a resource on the net or elsewhere that details the calculations for wind load and also the size of concrete footings for pylon type signs?

    I just want to check a couple things on our calculations.

    Regards,

    Ed

    This site used to have a free calculator and you could pay for stamped drawings, they just switched to a subscription service. I think they still have some cheap generic plans that you can use for most small signs. If you look through the resources on that site they have an excellent description for deciding on things like exposure category as well as defining some of the other key parameters that will help you get to the appropriate wind pressure for calculations.
