X & K Type of Bracing, Double Circuit Transmission-Tower


In this work an attempt has been made that 220-KV double circuit Transmission-Tower with X and K type of bracing has been modeled using Stadd Pro. Static analysis has been done for the tower by considering Earth quake Zone III, Steel frame with concentric bracing, damping ratio 2%. The wind loads are calculated using IS 802(part1/sec1) by considering wind zone III. The towers are modeled using parameter such as constant height, constant base width, and then varying the Bracing system as X and K type of bracing. After completing the analysis a comparative study is done with respect to Nodal displacement, axial force, axial stress, maximum deflection, maximum compressive stress, and maximum tensile stress. The design of tower member is done by considering the member as compression and tension member. After designing the again a comparison is done on amount of steel angle section required X –bracing tower and K-bracing tower for the safe erection.
