Guyed Pole

Guyed Poles

Guyed poles are similar to guyed masts, but they are typically shorter, Guyed poles are often used to support antennas, microwave dishes, and other telecom equipment.

Telecom guyed poles are generally taller and slenderer than the free-standing poles, with heights ranging from a few meters to over 100 meters as guy wires provide additional support and stability. 
The design and construction of guyed poles are similar to guyed masts, with the poles relying on guy wires for stability and support. However, due to their shorter height and smaller size, guyed poles are generally less complex and require less material to construct.
To design a guyed pole, engineers must carefully analyze the loads and forces involved, as well as the characteristics of the soil and foundation.

By using ASMTower software, user can create a 3D model of the guyed pole and simulate its behavior under various loading conditions. This allows engineers to optimize the design for maximum safety, efficiency, and cost-effectiveness.
With proper design and maintenance, guyed poles are a reliable and cost-effective solution for supporting equipment in a variety of applications.

Guy wires connection

ASMTower offers a unique feature that enables the design of both guy wire base connections and pole base connections, which can vary from one another. With ASMTower, users can model anchor bolts at the base and specify the arrangement and geometry of the bolts.

ASMTower supports different types of anchor bolts, including headed anchors, L-hooks, J-hooks, and deformed anchors. The software also performs a pull-out check and calculates the necessary embedded length based on the foundation reinforcement. This ensures that the base connections are designed to withstand the required loads and meet the necessary safety standards.

Combined Telecom Structures

ASMTower  enables efficient modeling and design of combined structures for telecom applications.

With ASMTower, it is possible to design a guyed pole that can be installed at the top of a telecom tower, with the guyed wires attached to the pole and the tower panel point attached to the other. The software automatically reflects the guy wire reactions to the tower and consider it in the design process, making it easy for designers to innovate and create new designs.

ASMTower is a powerful and user-friendly tool that streamlines the design process and facilitates the creation of innovative telecom structures.

ASMTower Output

  • ASMTower provides a detailed 3D view of the pole, including members and appurtenances, allowing for easy checking of input data and reducing the risk of errors.
  • The software also color members based on their utilization ratio, helping users identify unsafe sections of the tower.
  • Additionally, ASMTower generates valuable charts and diagrams, such as deformation conditions, displacement, tilt and twist, and global bending moment and shear diagrams, with the ability to show deformed shapes at various wind directions and load combinations.
  • Users can also generate comprehensive output reports in RTF format, with the ability to adjust report settings and select specific components to be included in the report.
