Designed specifically for the telecommunications industry, RISATower automates much of the tower analysis and design required by the TIA/EIA 222 Standard. RISATower analyzes towers using the ANSI/TIA-222-G (2005) standard or any of the previous TIA/EIA standards back to RS-222 (1959). Steel design is checked using the AISC ASD 9th Edition or the AISC LRFD specifications.
RISATower can analyze and design 3- and 4-sided guyed and self-supporting towers and either round or tapered ground mounted poles with or without guys. RISATower contains unique features such as True Cable behavior, hog rod take-up, foundation stiffness and much more. RISATower may export complete model files to RISA-3D for added analysis and design flexibility.
With exhaustive manufacturer databases and a familiar spreadsheet layout, it’s easy to quickly create and customize any tower. The tabbed interface neatly organizes every aspect of the model from segments and guys to feedlines and appurtenances.
