In the contemporary era, the telecommunication industry plays a great role in human societies and thus much more attention is now being paid to telecommunication towers than it was in the past. So the analysis and design of telecommunication tower for wind and earthquake are the major issues which are playing significant role in recent decades in the designing. Telecommunication towers with different configurations behave differently for lateral loadings. Lot of literature is available which proposes different formulas to determine seismic parameters. Also previously, designers considered safety of towers only against overturning. During the seismic event some members of towers reach its ultimate strength causing failure. However, performance of the different configurations of telecommunication tower against earthquake is not much discussed in the literatures. So there is need of in-depth study of behaviour of telecommunication tower for different configurations and its analysis for earthquake effect. In this research the wind and seismic analysis of telecommunication towers is carried out. Telecommunication towers with square in plan, with different bracing systems are designed and checked for gravity loading. The same models are modelled using STAAD Pro. The towers are analyzed by non-linear dynamic method. The results obtained from non-linear dynamic analysis are compared on the basis of various parameters.
