TSE TOWER is a powerful and comprehensive Microsoft Windows program for the analysis and design of steel transmission structures such as transmission latticed towers and electrical substations according to the ASCE 10-15 standard. An extensive library of panel types allow for quick creation of the structure through parametric tools.
The automatic generation feature offers a large library of panel, rigid connection and diaphragm prototypes. The TSE Tower program also generates wind and ice loads automatically according to the selected design standard. The analysis and design results are presented numerically or graphically for all or part of the frame. The limit states results are presented by means of color charts.
All design and geometric parameters are automatically calculated (slenderness ratios, force coefficients, etc.). These parameters may however be manually modified either graphically or by tables. Also, the TSE Tower program allows to group members sharing the same dimensions and attributes to ease the manual edition and results interpretation.
