Calculation of masts with steps for strength and stability

How to correctly calculate masts with fasteners for strength

Calculation of masts with fasteners is one of the very complex engineering calculations.

The obviously expressed non-linearity of the task attracted the attention of engineers and researchers in the early 1930s, and at about the same time, a methodology for calculating masts was developed on delays, in the main features preserved to date.

The essence of this calculation was that based on the design experience, the sections of the mast trunk and tights and the initial tension of the steps were set, after which the accepted sections for strength and stability were checked under the action of the maximum calculated wind load, ice tension, and tension of special antennas, etc. D.
