New project: Wind mast (23.07.2004)
The set of exemplary projects to demonstrate the fields of activity was extended:
- The project "Temporary buildings / Wind mast" was added. To determinate the output curve of a wind
powered engine with 126m diameter of the rotor blades (5 MB tower) a mast for wind measurement at the height
of 125m had to be assembled. The wind speed will be logged for a period of 5 years. The mast is prestressed
with 52 ropes and consists of usual scaffold components. The stresses and strains were calculated including
the nonlinear geometry (Th.III.O.) for the ropes considering also snap through due to lifting wind loads.
