Numerical Simulation of Landslide Behavier of Transmission Towers System

Project Details


Transmission towers are a vital component and management needs to assess the reliability and safety of these towers to minimize the risk of disruption to power supply that may result from in-service tower failure. This research advocates the use of nonlinear methodology for structural failure analysis, include the nonlinear analysis of thin-walled structures and the formulation employs the fiber approach for representing the spread of plasticity over a general open cross-section. This approach is used for structural failure prediction and been confirmed by the expensive full-scale testing of a new transmission tower design that collapsed during the test. Using this approach, the potential of failure to the transmission tower-line system cause by the landslide hazard will be inspection in this study. The sensitivity analysis of transmission cable system of three type of design condition will be identified in certain level of landslide hazard. Tower designs can be modified and upgraded according the risk evaluation in paired cable system and geological condition, which results in substantial savings in time and resources.
