We specialise in the analysis and design of towers and guyed masts.
Existing structures are analysed using a quasi-static approach with the facility to include extra members, for example antenna cross arms. We possess a number of general and finite element analysis programs for analysis of more unusual structures. New towers are designed to BS8100 using MS Tower and Robot Millennium FE packages.
Where we hold existing models, we also carry out structural capacity checks to ensure compliance with Home Office guidelines and the determination of satisfactory utilisation factors given the tower's capacity. If additional capacity is required, we can design an appropriate and practical strengthening scheme.
Routinely, we analyse structures in the following materials:
In addition to the analysis of existing structures we are engaged in new developments preparing:
We are always interested to hear about new projects so please do contact us, either for an informal chat or to arrange a meeting over coffee. Let us see if we can help you.
