Structural modeling, analysis and design solution
for communication towers

STAAD(X).Tower provides comprehensive analysis and design of monopoles, self-supporting and

guyed communication towers through physical modeling and parametric tools.

Comprehensive Analysis and Design Tools handles the insertion and editing of bracing systems in a
smarter way. Through easy parametric changes, the overall
