LOAD COMBINATION ON TRANSMISSION LINE TOWER STRUCTURE AT RELIABILITY, SECURITY AND SAFETY CONDITIONS

VLI = Vertical Load in Intact Weight Span TWS = Transverse Wind on Structure T1 = Tension at 320C + 100% Wind T3 = Tension at 40C + Nil Wind WC = Wind on Conductor
VLB = Vertical Load in Broken Weight Span LWS = Longitudinal Wind on Structure T2 = Tension at 320C + Nil Wind T4= Tension at 40C + 36% Wind WI = Wind on Insulator String
Ө = Line Deviation
