A method of locating electric transmission line towers using
ground survey data in a digital computer program is presented in this
thesis. The towers are located for maximum spacing subject to the
constraints of available tower heights, forbidden ground areas, minimum
ground clearance, and specified conductor tensions. The digital
In this thesis, a digital computer method for locating transmission
line towers is presented. The computer program selects the
position of both angle and tangent type towers for a given ground profile.
This selection will provide a minimum cost per foot of
transmission line in terms of the average costs...
