Abstract: The paper reports about the design and stiffness analyses of communication mastís diagonal mounting using COMSOL MultiPhysics v 4.2 a. This model presents the stiffness effect of a mastís diagonal mounting for incessant communication. When operating under a given wind load at a specific location, the antennaís total rotation angle should stay below a certain limit to ensure uninterrupted communications. For most of the masts being are exhibiting very low torsional stiffness that might be due to the geometry of the diagonal mountings. An attempt has been made to increase the stiffness of such a diagonal mounting by first analyzing a parameterized geometry followed by an updated geometry.


Keywords: Diagonal mounting, Rotation angle, Stiffness ratio, COMSOL.
