ASMTower is provided with an easy way to quickly define the tower/pole. as well as databases of frequently used inputs like materials , profiles , antenna dimensions and etc.
ASMTower designs the tower according to ANSI/TIA-222-G, ANSI/TIA-222-H, EN1993-3-1.
- Easy input through grid cells like spreadsheet (copy/ paste is allowed to your external spread sheets).
- Appurtenances can be located anywhere on the structure.
- Guy cables or Struts can be defined at any location and azimuth.
ASMTower includes most commonly recognized database to define structure geometry and appurtenances attached to it. software default settings have the most popular entities, in a simple way the user can add, delete or modify any entities in addition to import database to the software or to export database from it. The following entities are included in the Database:
- Guy Cables
- Transmission line clusters.
- Transmission line feeders.
- Panel antenna.
- Microwave antenna.
- Antenna mounts.
- Steel materials.
- Bolt materials.
- Steel profile include unequal angle, equal angle, 60 angles, double angle, star-shape angle, quad angle, C-channel, double C-channel, Pipe, Tube, Solid Round, Flat bar*.
3D Graphical presentation
ASMTower draws the full structure (either lattice tower or pole) in a 3D rendered view. Also the view include both of antenna mounts, paneled antenna, microwave antenna, ladder, transmission line clusters, guy cables and struts. The structure can be shown in the deformed shape in a 3D wireframe view.
Comprehensive report is auto generated by ASMTower in rich text format (*.rtf). This format can be opened by many software and by Microsoft office.
Once the user completes the input of the tower, the program draws a single line diagram for the structure, showing its shape, dimensions, profiles and materials. This single line diagram can be exported to a DXF format (CAD Compatible).
Once the program performs the analysis of the tower, it displays the results of the tower by means of a set of drawings to illustrate the results.
- Design ratio chart.
- Deformation chart.
- Global moment/shear chart.
- Force Vs. capacity chart.
