 ```Bob, Windload would be measured in pounds of thrust. Windarea would be measured in square feet or meters. No, windload cannot simply be added together. Neither can windarea. Here's a link to a basic mast calculator: http://www.math.niu.edu/KARC/mast/ It should give you an idea of the calculations necessary to determine the survivability of an antenna system on a single mast. Calculating tower capacities works on the same principles, but there's engineers who make their living designing and certifying tower and antenna installations. 73 de Bob - KØRC in MN ------------------------------ Message: 10 Date: Sat, 9 Dec 2006 23:21:14 -0600 From: "AD5VJ Bob" Subject: Re: [TowerTalk] "Wind Load" "Wind Area" To: Message-ID: <050f01c71c1b\$03603580\$6501a8c0@D9FBHB71> Content-Type: text/plain; charset="US-ASCII" Also for total WINDLOAD with multiple antennas, do I determine each individual antennas WINDLOAD and then simply add them all together to know if a structure will support them all based on its rated WINDLOAD? 73 fer nw es gud DX, QSL VIA: BUR, LotW, e-QSL Bob AD5VJ(AAR6VM) Old calls: WY5L/KH3-KE5CTY-N5IET http://www.ad5vj.com/ Member: CTDXCC, NTCC, STXDXCC FISTS: # 12637, SKCC# 2369 10X# 37210, FP#-1141 SMIRK#-5177, RARS #-149 > -----Original Message----- > From: towertalk-bounces@contesting.com > [mailto:towertalk-bounces@contesting.com] On Behalf Of AD5VJ Bob > Sent: Saturday, December 09, 2006 11:00 PM > To: towertalk@contesting.com > Subject: [TowerTalk] "Wind Load" "Wind Area" > > In searching around learning abt WINDLOAD, I have found two > terms that seem to be the same: > > "Wind Load" "Wind Area" > > Are these one and the same? > _______________________________________________ _______________________________________________ TowerTalk mailing list TowerTalk@contesting.com http://lists.contesting.com/mailman/listinfo/towertalk ```
