ASMTower calculates automatically wind load, ice load and dead load according to the following design codes:
Automatic load calculation
ASMTower calculates wind and ice loads on the following elements according to the chosen design code. The software then distributes the calculated loads as well as the weight of the structure and the elements attached to it, taking into consideration the decentralization of loads.
- Steel members in lattice tower, stepped monopole and tapered monopole.
- Panel antenna (either vertical or tilted).
- Microwave antenna (either with mount or without).
- Mounts/pipes for installation of antennas
- Satellite dish.
- Solar panels.
- Transmission line clusters (either rectangular or circular).
- Ladders (with/without safety).
- Step bolts.
- Any specified effective projected area or concentrated forces at any height.
