STAAD(X).Tower

Design Software for Communication Towers

 

Efficiently analyze and design monopoles and self-supporting and guyed communication towers thanks to STAAD(X).Tower’s powerful physical modeling and parametric tools. You will save time and complete projects faster through automatic model generation, including categorized panels and legs. Easily edit your model to achieve the precise shape and configuration you desire. You can design and attach external components such as antennas, appurtenances, and platforms, and generate wind, ice, and seismic loads following TIA codes and other standard reference loads.

Capabilities 

 

Model communications towers 

   
 

Perform comprehensive analysis and design of monopoles (tapered and straight), self-supporting (three leg and four leg) and guyed towers (three leg and four leg), and communication towers through physical modeling and parametric tools, ensuring minimum user interaction. Easily attach components and generate wind, ice, and seismic loads following TIA codes and IS codes along with other standard reference loads. 

   

Model structural steel 

   
 

Model structural steel shapes such as beams, columns, and braces, based on country-specific steel tables or user-defined shapes. Complete your steel design by modeling steel connections, either standard or custom, and automatically adjust based on the connecting members. Model comprehensive steel plate-work, including gusset plates and chute work. 

   

Design and analyze structural models 

   
 

Quickly model your entire structure, including decks, slabs, slab edges and openings, beams, columns, walls, braces, spread and continuous footings, and pile caps. Efficiently automate many of your time-consuming design and analysis tasks and produce practical system and component designs that are document ready. 

   

Design to international design standards 

   
 

Extend the reach of your business practice and take advantage of global design opportunities by using a wide range of international standards and specifications in our design products. Complete your designs with confidence thanks to extensive support of U.S. and international standards. 

   

Comply with seismic requirements 

   
 

Design and detail seismic force-resisting systems, generating seismic loads according to the relevant building code. Consider these forces in the design of elements and, where applicable, the design of frames and the larger structural system. Enforce the ductility requirements of the selected design code in element proportioning and detailing. 

   

Generate design loads and load combinations 

   
 

Apply code-prescribed wind and seismic loads to the structure using built-in load generators. Calculate relevant loading parameters automatically based on the structural geometry, mass, and selected building code provisions without the need for separate hand calculations. Combine these lateral load cases with gravity and other types of loads using load combination generators. 

   

Analyze gravity and lateral load 

   
 

Design and analyze simple or complex structures for a wide range of loading conditions, including those induced by gravity such as dead and live loads, including skip conditions, in combination with lateral loads including wind and seismic. 

   

Perform geometric nonlinear model analysis 

   
 

Incorporate second-order and non-linear effects resulting from significant structural displacements into your analysis results. Design flexible structures with confidence, as you can account for the additional forces from increased displacements. 

   

Share structural models 

   
  Transfer structural model geometry and design results from one application to another and synchronize changes over time. Quickly share the structural model, drawings, and information with the entire team for review.
   

Utilize international section profiles 

   
 

Complete your structural model using a vast array of international section profile databases, which are included at no extra charge. Take advantage of global design opportunities around the world.
