THE YEAR IN INFRASTRUCTURE 2019 CONFERENCE

WHAT'S NEW?

OpenTower

OpenTower is the latest innovation on the market for telecommunication tower design and analysis. This purpose-built application captures real-life analysis workflows, including modifications, multiple scenario evaluations, foundation checks, and connection designs. Here are some of the great new functionalities offered.

Precise 3D physical modeling

Model towers faster than ever using parametric modeling, including automatic orientation of members. In addition, OpenTower automatically generates wind, ice, and seismic loads based on a variety of standards.

Precise 3D
Capture real-life analysis workflows.

Access libraries, catalogs, and databases

Access a comprehensive library of bracing types and ancillary equipment to quickly create a tower model. The application works with external catalogs and libraries that can be edited and extended throughout the lifecycle of tower management and re-analysis. OpenTower includes databases, such as appurtenances catalog, bracing library, and truss-leg library. A custom tower catalog is provided for built-up sections as well as a digital library and catalog management service with approved, proprietary components and manufacturers’ content.

Access Libraries, catalogs, and databases
Leverage a comprehensive library of bracing types and ancillary equipment.

Scenario creation and modification layers

Save time and complete projects faster through automatic scenario creation by combining geometric layers, equipment grouping, and loading criteria. You can also create a physical model by applying hierarchical modification layers with revision history on top of the base geometry using built-in business logic.

OpenTower Advanced Graphics
Advanced graphics offer a realistic view of the tower as modeled, including 3D rendering of equipment and feedlines.

Powerful visualizations, results, and diagrams

Advanced graphics offer a realistic view of the tower as modeled, including 3D rendering of equipment and feedlines on the tower. OpenTower provides an exhaustive set of post-processing features that include results and diagrams. Users can customize report formats through the intuitive report generator and export to various formats. OpenTower analysis was built off of the STAAD engine, trusted by engineers around the world.
