Automatic calculation of drag coefficients, gust factors and topographic parameters.

Analysis methods in TSE Pole include:
– Static linear and P-Delta
– Static non-linear
– Buckling
– Natural frequencies
– Seismic and dynamic

Automatic handling of tension-only members.
Design specifications

Available design provisions include:
– ASCE Manual No. 72
– ASCE/SEI 48-11

Table to define the slenderness ratios of the members that will be considered in the design of the structure. The slenderness ratios should be specified as an equivalent slenderness for members with a variable inertia.
Calculates the member’s resistance for bending, compression, tension, shear and combined loads.
Calculates the internal stresses for the tubes, anchorage bolts and base plates. Design the base plate and bolts.
Member Design

Member capacities may be checked against the international design standards ASCE Manual No. 72 and ASCE/SEI 48-11. Extensive types of checks performed by the program include slenderness, buckling, anchor, anchor rod strength, tensile and compression strengths, shear, bending and combined loads.
