RE: Guyed Tower

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I designed guyed and self supporting towers for 2 years from 1982 to 1984
for Andrew Corp (I will have to reactivate old neurons).  Our practice was
to assume pin connections at the guy cable attachment points.

I am analyzing a Guyed tower using computer program. Need somebody's expert 
opinion.
At the point where Guy cables are attached shall I use as a pin connection
or 
a spring joint, also what about at ground where the cables are anchored. I
am 
getting quite different results
Thanks in advance
