foundation design of the green field. The project present covers the analysis and design of Microwave Tower as per codal provisions for the communication towers. There are different types of communication towers present now-a-days in the cellular business. This project presents the analysis of microwave antenna tower with wind load loads acting at different section as per IS 875. The angle sections are commonly used in microwave antenna towers. Open latticed steel towers are used widely in a variety of civil engineering applications. Plan and elevation of the towers are drawn iv .ABSTRACT In the present era the technology in communications has developed to a very large extent. The faster growth demands advances in the design and implementation of the communication towers. And the members are designed as per the Indian codal provision (IS 800) and checked for the safety.
