WIND LOADS ON ELECTRICAL TRANSMISSION STRUCTURES.

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Guidelines for structural loads on electrical transmission structures were prepared by the American Society of Civil Engineers' Committee on Electrical Transmission Structures. Discussions on climatic loads that include wind, ice, and windstorms are part of these guidelines. A summary of wind loads is presented. The wind loads are discussed in terms of wind speed, probability of occurrence, height and terrain effects, gust response factors, and force coefficients. A brief discussion on tornadoes is also presented.
