TSE TOWER transmission and substation software

TSE TOWER

Design of steel transmission structures such as transmission latticed towers and electrical substations according to ASCE 10-15.

STRUCTURAL ANALYSIS AND DESIGN OF
transmission latticed towers and electrical substations

TSE TOWER is part of the Tower Structural Engineering software.

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.

Specifications

TOWER ANALYSIS FEATURES

The TSE Tower performs automatic calculation of ice and wind loads as well as force coefficients according to:
– IEC 60826:2003
– CSA C22.3 No. 60826-10
– ASCE 74-2009
– NESC 2012
– User defined ice and wind profiles

Automatic generation of dead, ice and wind loads to the following standards:
– ASCE 74-2009
– IEC 60826-2003
– CAN/CSA-C22.3 No. 60826-10

Uniform wind pressure profile and uniform thickness ice profile

User-defined wind pressure profiles 
United States county listings of design criteria for wind, wind with ice, and ice

Loading for joints, members including concentrated, uniform, trapezoidal and thermal loads

Loading for surfaces and finite element plates

Automatic calculation of drag coefficients, gust factors, topographic parameters and escalate ice thickness

Display loads graphically and detailed wind and ice loads parameters can be displayed in numerical tables

Automatic handling of tension-only members

TSE DESIGN FEATURES

Available design provisions include ASCE 10-15 standard.

Members are checked against their ultimate strength in accordance with the selected code, Design check include:
– Slenderness ratios
– Buckling length
– Tension
– Compression
– Connections (shear, bearing, block shear)
– Anchor rods

Anchor rod can be design checked for ASCE 10-15 and CAN/CSA S16-14 standards.
Calculation of the equivalent loads on footings

Can optionally check members according to LRFD-99 for :
– Bending
– Tension-bending
– Compression-bending
– Shear
– Torsion
– Warping

Profile optimization of selected members allows to test different section shapes, grade and materials types.

AUTOMATIC TOWER GENERATION

The TSE Tower toolbar contains the commands used to operate the TSE Tower. The automatic model generator generates the full 3D model of any tower including the main members, diagonals, diaphragms and rigid connections. 

The program also computes the beta angles, the slenderness ratios and the force coefficients. The Tower Generator automatically computes the wind loads and ice loads.
