9 TOWER CABLE ANCHOR DESIGN DESCRIPTION: Concrete anchor for the Southwest Windpower Air 27' and 45' Tower Models. Supporting cables from the tower are attached to the concrete anchor via and eye bolt and cable clamp arrangement. LOADS: Per Restrains Reactions fig., the maxium anchor loads are due to wind loading. They are 494 lbf in the vertical up direction and 359 lbf in the horizontal direction. SOILS INFORMATION: NA It is assumed the anchor will be located in sandy soil. The recommended UBC guidelines for allowable soil bearing capacity are used to determine adequacy of the anchor to support the loads. It is assumed that all fill is compacted. Bearing strength is taken as 1500 PSF Lateral bearing strength is taken s 150 PSF/ (ft depth) Friction is taken as.25 X effective anchor weight. ANCHOR WEIGHT: Reference drawing R00003 for dimensions.

10 CONCRETE VOLUME: Base radius := 1ft Base thickness := 8in V base := 2 Base radius π Basethickness V base = 0.1m 3 Column width := 8in Column height := 22 in V column := 2 Column width Columnheight V column = 0m 3 V total := V base + V column Concrete density := 150 lbf ft 3 V total = 0.1m 3 Concrete weight := V total Concrete density Concrete weight = 436.4lbf

11 OVER BURDEN VOLUME: Height := 16 in 2 ( ) Column width Height 2 V ob := π Base radius Height V ob = 3.6ft 3 Density ob := 75 lbf ft 3 Weight overburden := V ob Density ob Weight overburden = 269.7lbf Total weight := Concrete weight + Weight overburden Total weight = 706.1lbf O.K. 2 Anchor bearing := π Base radius Anchor bearing = 3.1ft 2 Soil pressure := Total weight Anchor bearing Soil pressure = lbf OK ft 2

12 LATERAL RESISTANCE: Lateral bearing1 := Height Column width Lateral bearing1 = 0.9ft 2 Lateral bearing2 := 2 Base radius Base thickness Lateral bearing2 = 1.3ft 2 Lateral allowable bearing = 150 PSF to 1', 300 PSF from 1' to 2' lbf Lateral resisting := Lateral bearing1 150 ft 2 Lateral resisting = 533.3lbf + Lateral bearing2 300 lbf ft 2 F vertical := 494 lbf ( ).25 Lateral friction := Total weight F vertical Lateral friction = 53 lbf Total lateral := Lateral resisting + Lateral friction Total lateral = 586.4lbf O.K.

13 REINFORCING STEEL: F vertical = 494 lbf F horizontal := 359 lbf Column width := 8in τ max := F horizontal Column width 2 τ max = 5.6psi OK σ max := F vertical Column width 2 σ max = 7.7psi OK Minimum Reinforcement required: Per UBC sec reinforcing steel area is to be 1.33 times greater than that required by analysis. Load at the 8"x8" section = 494 lbf axial tension + maximum possible transfer moment to the base of that section = 359 lbf X 22" =658.2 lbf*ft. Tensile load in the Rebar: M r := lbf ft width center := 4in Tensile rebar := M r width center + F vertical Tensile rebar = lbf Per UBC section , tensile load: T UBC := 1.33 Tensile rebar T UBC = lbf Required Rebar Area: A rebar := T UBC psi A rebar = 0.1in 2 #4 rebar=.196 in 2 OK

14 Use one strand #4 centered in column section for base to column connection. Use two strands #4 in each direction perpendicular to each other in base as shown in drawing R Per UBC table 19D use 1/2" Eyebolt embedded into concrete 6" deep tied adjacent to rebar.

16 Conclusion: This analysis is a maximum load condition static analysis only; no fatigue analysis is contained herein. This analysis pertains to the 45 ft Air Turbine tower with construction and loading as described in appendix A, and does not address the operation of the turbine or the connection of the turbine to the tower. Loading conditions are at 100 mph. Proper assembly is assumed. The sections of the tower were checked to see that it meets UBC requirements against buckling which it does. This requirement is the limiting factor for wind speed for the tower. Guy wire stress is maximum in the top guy wire.
