Transmission Tower, STAAD.Pro 2008, Non-linear irregularities.


In this project, the design of steel lattice tower prescribed for transmission of electricity by the categorized gravity and lateral loads has been studied and analysed for the employment of the project. The analysis has been done by taking different combination of loads and then the design has been come into picture using the code module IS 800:1984. The present work describes the analysis and design of transmission line tower of 25 meter height viz. various parameters. In design of tower for weight optimization some parameters are considered such as; base width, height of tower , outline of tower. Using STAAD , analysis of transmission towers has been carried out as a 3-D structure. The tower members are designed as angle section.Prior to the design process the convincing site investigation and Envoirmental impact assessment data has to to collected through various modes via Electronic or Print media. The desired safety factors has been actuated contemplating the selected location i.e Kasouli. The various factors including envoirmental and materials used for the structure is also be considered.The foundation detailing is chosen keeping in consideration the geotechnical investigation data. The software tool used in the process is STAAD.Pro 2008. The load calculations were performed manually but the analysis and design results were obtained through STAAD.Pro 2008. At all stages, the effort is to provide optimally safe design along with keeping the economic considerations.
