Abstract: The trending demand and necessity of telecommunication towers it is required to keep analysing the guyed towers with different materials and cross-section to get efficient sustainability. This research work involves the analysis of an 8.6m segment with guys as a bottom segment of telecommunication guyed tower made up of Fiber-reinforced polymer. In this research, the analysis is performed for FRP material with 40.6% and 65% fiber volume fraction to get the comparative results regarding deformation, stresses and strains. In this study, the guyed segment is analysed for Darbhanga location of India that has higher wind intensity according to IS code of wind loads 1987 part-3 by using Finite Element Analysis on ANSYS workbench. After performing analysis we conclude that the deformation occurred in guys, and stresses and strains can be seen in segment only after applying wind load on one face of a segment upto 8.6m height. The results obtained confirm that the segment made up of FRP with 65% fiber volume fraction is demonstrating viable results as compared to 40.6% fiber volume fraction.
