Compressive Strength Evaluation of Longitudinally Stiffened Octangular-Section Modular Shell Towers Choi, Byung Ho; Kim, Jung Won;
This paper examined the uniaxial compressive strength of longitudinally-stiffened octangular modular section towers. Through a series of comparative studies, the 3-dimensional finite element analysis results were considerably larger than the nominal strength values based on Eurocode. Therefore, the design strength equations are simply applicable to the design of the octangular-section tower module, but a more rational method will be needed to properly predict the capacity.
