Paper Title:
Nonlinear Analysis of Transmission Tower Structure by Three FEM Models
  Abstract

In this paper, three kinds of FEM models, i.e., the truss element model, the beam element model and the mixed beam-solid element model are utilized to simulate the full-scale field test of transmission tower. Based on Abaqus software, the geometric and material nonlinearity of the structure is considered. Comparing the numerical results with test data, it is found that the truss element model is no longer suitable and the mixed beam-solid element model is more accurate than the beam element model. Thus, using solid element to discrete the key nodes of the tower can greatly enhance the accuracy and reliability of the numerical prediction.
