Not a speaker related question and barely a lighting one, I'm installing some gobo projectors as part of a light trail in a town centre and the people in charge of the lamposts have asked for wind loading calcs... any pointers? there's budget to pay for this as long as its not loads?

Thanks...
blah blah blah blah blah......

They should have the data already of wind loads......then send this to a engineer with what weight and at what height you wish to add..............

What they want is the additional wind loading added to the structure by the light, basically "how much of a sail is it?"

Are they in the last 20 years or older?

If no data is on record then you need trial pit excavations....................
