Transmission Tower, Monopole, Bracing, Loads


This research work is focused on comparison of transmission tower and monopole tower for different parameters viz. different height and different loading combinations. The comparative analysis is carried out with respect to axial force deflection maximum sectional property and critical load conditions. The transmission tower and monopole are design by manually by using limit state method based on IS 800, IS 802 IS 875 and gust factor method. Based on steps and formulas involved, a design program will be prepare in MS-EXCEL. The veracity of program will be check by first designing the manually designed transmission tower and monopole using the software and compare results. Wind analysis is carried out using standard codes and software. The behaviour of tower and pole is analysed for different load combination. The maximum displacement values, shear forces and bending moments are obtained. Therefore, transmission tower and monopole should be designed considering both structural and electrical requirements for safe and economical design as per Indian code. It is concluded from past study that transmission tower have lower lateral displacement as compared to monopole. This is because they have higher stiffness. Transmission tower carry heavy electrical transmission conductor at sufficient and safe from the ground than monopole. Loads acting on the tower and monopole are wind load, dead load of the structure, braking load of conductor and earthquake load considered as per Indian standard code. The steel quantity required for transmission tower is approximated two times more than monopole. The idea is to reach a definite conclusion regarding the superiority of two structures.
