# Pole Strength Assessment

### Pole Strength Assessment Software

D-CalcTM v.4 provides pole ground line inspectors and engineers a tool to quickly and accurately evaluate the  effect of damage or decay on a pole’s strength. Traditional methods determined pole adequacy based on averaging remaining shell thickness or reduced circumference measurements. D-CalcTM allows the user to input pole properties and “draw” a true representation of the observed damage, which it then uses to calculate the percent remaining strength.
