Telecom Towers Structure Profiler (TTSP)

Research Project


The primary objective of this project is to allow the best and most advanced sensing technologies to become an integral part of the tower structure and implement SHM into tower structural design with respect to maintenance cost reduction, increased structural stability and significant weight savings. 

In addition, the objective includes applying the usage of construction waste in the manufacture of plain and reinforced concrete used in tower foundations. As well as, calculating the carbon footprint caused by the construction and operation of the telecom towers. It is expected that the project will contribute significantly to the state-of-the-art in the design and analysis of telecom tower behaviors.
