Full Steel Structure Analysis and Modeling

Combining decades of transmission and distribution engineering experience with digital models created from the collected data, the Osmose team can generate solutions and designs that range from simple corrosion mitigation to structural restoration and upgrades that will ultimately extend the service life of a steel asset and increase the structural load-carrying capacity.

Steel Structure Analysis

SteelCalcTM

Tangent single circuit tower

SteelCalc uses proprietary condition rating calculations factoring in specific geographical and physical characteristics of the structures to provide a focused groundline engineering assessment.

SteelCalc is the only analysis method in the electric utility industry that provides a more precise understanding of the structural health at the groundline level, where corrosion and mechanical damage risk exposure are critical, comparing the actual member capacity to industry-wide load cases and design codes. This process ultimately allows for improved risk mitigation at the structure and circuit level.

Steel Structure Modeling

O-Cap

Structure models are subjected to a rigorous structural analysis via Osmose’s proprietary O-Cap application.  O-Cap is capable of modeling structural performance at different levels of deterioration and environmental loading with an advanced non-linear algorithm. The results of this analysis drive action toward proactively preventing structural failure through restoration and upgrade solutions.
