Study on Long Span Transmission Tower’s Typical Malfunctions

Abstract:

Article Preview

In this paper, several typical malfunctions of the long span transmission tower are analyzed, such as the material stiffness reduced by atmospheric corrosion over a long time, the loose of bolt joint caused by accidental factors or man-made sabotages, and foundation settlement. And establish finite element models according to the characteristics of different malfunctions. By analyzing the models, we discuss the safety of the long span transmission tower at different malfunctions. It is shown that the proposed method is of efficiency and practicality.
