Towers’ Foundation: wind turbines, transmission lines and telecommunications

Jarbas Milititsky

A practical reference on the special characteristics and technical and operational needs in the foundation of towers engineering in general, this book approaches in new ways the specific aspects and demands of foundation projects for wind turbines, besides introducing the characteristics of and solutions for transmission lines and telecommunication towers.

Tower’s Foundation: wind turbines, transmission lines and telecommunications contains case studies of real projects for different conditions of subsoil, the definition of resistance and compressibility parameters, calculation and sizing, referral for the investigation of the subsoil for each type of tower and information on supporting evidence.

Richly illustrated and the result of the author’s practical experience in real projects, the book brings references for the deepening of the concepts introduced and discusses the causes and consequences of the main problems in tower foundation projects.
