Re: Guyed Tower

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
In response to the question regarding analysis of guyed towers.

Cables are assumed pinned at both ends. However, be sure your construction
detail ensures a pinned connection. Partial or full fixity can result in
fatigue failure of the guy or connecting plates.
