Description: This section presents three basic methods for deriving and documenting Rn as an LTL value along with the coefficient of variation (COVR) for single-pole structures. These include the following: 1. An empirical analysis based primarily on tests of full-sized poles. 2. A theoretical analysis of mechanics-based models used in conjunction with Monte Carlo simulation. 3. A default assignment of material distribution parameters.
Keywords: Electric lines, poles, wood poles, testing, loads, uncertainty, probability measures, mathematical statistics, confidence intervals, mathematical models, simulation methods, Monte Carlo method, strength, probability density function, PDA, coefficients of variation, statistical analysis.
