Section 2.0 - Loads

ID #1017

Section 2.6.9.2Can I use loading that is less than the values prescribed by the written TIA-222-G and claim compliance with the standard? If so, under what conditions?

The standard provides force coefficients for basic appurtenance shapes as provided in Table 2-8 and for generic microwave antennas as provided in Annex C. Antennas and other discrete appurtances with complex shapes may be idealized by the simple shapes provided in the standard or may be determined using Wind Tunnel testing, CFD computations or other rational methods that may result in lower force coefficients. TIA-222-G specifically provides standard prescribed methods to calculate the Effective Projected Area of combinations of appurtenances commonly used for antennas supporting structures. These methods include the many factors not easily taken into consideration in design such as shielding, dynamic loads, etc. The intent of the Standard is not to allow the use of other methods that result in less loading than these prescribed methods.
