Sign Design Handbook from C.H.I.P.S.

Engineering Sign Structures
An Introduction to Analysis and Design
by Benjamin Jones

Engineering Sign Structures contains:

  • 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

Engineering Sign Structures also includes the fundamental mathematics for readers not already familiar with engineering calculations.

Engineering Sign Structures sets the standard for sign engineering, and isthe essential reference for every sign company, structural engineer and public agency involved in the analysis and design of sign structures.
