Test Experience with Heavy Angle Dead End Lattice Transmission Towers
During the past three years, the Electric Power Research Institute's Transmission Line Mechanical Research Center has conducted full scale tests on three 500kV heavy angle dead end lattice...

Investigating the Behavior of a Lattice Structural Section
Tests were conducted on a fully instrumented lattice section assembled using various connection types (bolted or welded). The results of this study show that bolt slippage can have a major...

Dynamic Characteristics of Translational Lattice Domes
The feasibility of using lattice domes of various shapes generated by translating a variety of parametric polygons is illustrated and the dynamic characteristics of these lattices determined....

Discrete Field Stability Analysis of X-Braced Lattices
The three-dimensional X-braced lattice is used as a compression member in structures ranging from the long span roof of buildings to radio and television antennas. In such cases the design...

Effect of Joint Rigidity on Buckling Strength of Single Layer Lattice Domes
The present paper discusses the effect of the joint rigidity on the buckling strength of single layer lattice domes, with regular three way grids, under vertical loading. The effect of...

A Study on Buckling Characteristics of Single-Layer Latticed Domes with the Initial Geometrical Imperfection

Large Deformation Analysis of Lattice Truss Structures Including Hysteretic Material Behavior
A methodology is presented to analyze lattice truss structures including both material and geometric nonlinearities. Modeled member material behavior modes include: buckling, yielding,...

Spatial, Lattice and Tension Structures
This proceedings, Spatial, Lattice and Tension Structures, contains over 100 papers presented at the IASS-ASCE International Symposium 1994,...

Use of Hierarchical Lattices for Predicting the Fluid or Stress Transfer in Concrete
Hierarchical lattices are used to study the influence of local disorder on the transfer of properties (stresses, strains, permeability) from the micro-scale to the macro-scale. They are...

Variation in Design Practice for Lattice Towers
The design and analysis procedures employed for lattice transmission towers vary among countries, companies, and designers. This variation in design practice affects the relative reliability...

Parametric Study of Bracing in Lattice Towers
The behaviour of cross-bracing comprising struts and ties connected at their cross-over joints in lattice towers is subject to some uncertainty. It is affected significantly by taper and...

Analysis of Glulam Lattice Dome
Glued-laminated timber (glulam) domes have become competitive in the engineering of large-span roof structures. Three-way glulam grid domes, such as the Triax and Varax domes, are particularly...

Why Bifurcation: A Study of a Reticulated Dome
Numerical results for a hexagonal lattice dome subjected to uniform gravity loading are presented. We demonstrate that a perfect nonlinear bifurcation analysis plays a crucial role in...

Transmission Structure Foundation Loads and Performance
Transmission line structures are subjected to unique loading conditions which for the majority of structures results in maximum loads which occur infrequently and act for only short periods...

Steel Pile Foundations for Transmission Line Towers, as Used in Western Europe

Cellular-Automata for Hydrodynamic Modeling
A two-dimensional fluid continuum system can be modeled using a discrete field of particles that interact according to simple deterministic rules. The methodology is called Cellular Automata....
