Q 22. How does detailing of design affect the strength of tower ?

Ans: Designer provides size of each member. He also provides number of bolts and diameter of bolts at each joint. After that it is responsibility of detailer to Make production drawings without sacrificing the strength of tower. For example , if the distance of each hole from rolled edge/ cut edge is not maintained , according to recommendations in standards, then the joint does not get the desired strength, notwithstanding that diameter of bolt and number of bolts are according to recommendation of designer. British standards insist that detailing of tower design be appraised by an independent appraiser, before production is taken up.
