Guy Tension Analyzer (GTA) Software Enhancements 2

The Guy Tension Analyzer software tool is used to calculate tensions on guy wires and guy anchors for dead-end and angle distribution poles. The tool can handle three types of guy wire configurations: 1.) standard (guys connected directly to anchors from a line pole), 2.) span guy, and 3.) sidewalk guy. In the standard and span guy configurations, up to ten lines (ten lines in each direction for angle poles) can be accommodated, together with up to ten tap lines terminating at an arbitrary angle with respect to the main line (feature not supported with sidewalk configuration), as well as five guy wires and anchors. The tool provides complete flexibility to connect any guy to any anchor. This software enhancement focuses on updating the GTA calculation algorithm to include resultant guying.
