QP 6.74.09 Update - Span Profile Improvement and Wind Loads

Unread postby Sonideft » Wed Nov 17, 2021 11:21 am

In this update we added one additional feature to the Span Profile. You can now select if you wish to see the Minimum Clearance to ground level. Due to ground slopes and other factors, this may not be at the Maximum Sag point of the wire/messenger. If the lowest clearance is at one end, this will be visible as well.

The other change we made behind the scenes is to further take advantage of the Catenary Cable Elements implemented for Sags & Tensions. Instead of the estimate we previously used for wind loads applied to the pole, these are now calculated directly by through the Catenary Cable Elements. This can make a few percentage points difference in some scenarios, or identify a different, but similar, "worst case wind load scenario" for the structure.
