My research has focused on modeling lattice transmission towers using Finite Element techniques to analyze their performance against hurricane winds.   Transmission towers are often assumed to have fixed connections in simulations, even though this assumption is not strictly true. I have explored modeling connections in towers as “pinned” or “fixed” in order to discover if there is a difference in the static and dynamic responses of these structures in the linear state.
