Linear Buckling Analysis of a Truss Tower with Dead Loads

Application ID: 101981

This example shows how to compute the critical buckling load in the presence of dead loads. A truss tower is supported by pretensioned guys. The pretension load and gravity on the truss are considered as dead loads, while the vertical load applied at the top of the tower is considered as the live load.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
