An analysis is made of the stability of transmission line structures. The critical load that can be placed on the structures is determined. If the number of structures is large, the restraining effect of the wires becomes negligible. It is found that the critical load can be greatly increased if, in a long line of structures, a structure is braced in relatively few places.
