Volume 6 (Part 2): High Voltage Overhead Power Lines: Theoretical Calculations and Formulae for Transmission Line Towers
 
 
 

 
 
Volume 6 (Part 2) takes the reader through the philosophy, theory, principles and practices of the design and fabrication of overhead power line structures.   
 
The author begins with an analysis of the many and varied mechanical forces that overhead power line towers are required to withstand. Once the nature of the forces on the towers is understood, the book proceeds to discuss the geometry of towers. It moves on to discuss the fundamentals of force diagrams and graphical techniques for the calculation of the forces in the tower members and introduces finite elements and computer methods.
 
Power line towers are routinely subjected to full scale mechanical testing and the book concludes by describing the procedures followed at major test stations around the world.
