This update provides a correction to the wood pole data used for Western Red Cedar. The modulus of elasticity value was off by more than 10%, based on reputable sources. The value, as seen in the Segment Loadings report, should be 7720 MPa.

We also corrected a glitch in the calculation of bending moments associated with down guy wires attached to the side of the pole. Although the magnitude of these moments is not great, its can impact some guy wire tensions.
