Mast and antennas

Nowadays, hardly any classical transmitter masts are erected, since the use of existing buildings is usually sufficient for digital data radio. For this purpose, for example, available areas on the tubular towers or lattice towers of wind turbines are used. Another possibility is to use wind turbines that have reached the end of their service life. In this case, the nacelle with its hub and rotor blades is removed and the transmitter including a platform is placed on the existing support structure. In this course, the supporting structure must be examined with regard to lateral vibrations, natural frequencies and service life.

The SKI engineering company is able to accompany this conversion in an expert opinion. This includes recording the current condition of the plant and, if necessary, the existing natural frequencies using measurement technology. This serves as a basis for further investigations and evaluation of the supporting structure. The measurement data are also used to validate the calculation models on which the structural analyses are performed. Especially the susceptibility to wind induced lateral vibrations is of special importance.

The SKI Ingenieurges. mbH can carry out structural analyses. This includes the determination of earthquake, vibration and wind loads as well as the development of a suitable calculation model and the execution of the simulations and evaluation of the results.
