    Description

    Various types of wind-induced mechanical oscillations occur
    in high voltage overhead lines. These vibrations can lead to
    damage of fittings and conductors and are the consequence of
    dynamic stresses caused by alternating bendings in the wires.
    The development of realistic mathematical models constitutes
    an important tool in the optimization process relating to
    the maximal dynamic strains, as it would allow the
    simulation of many different configurations. The analytical
    investigations of the two- and three- dimensional models of
    the wind induced vibrations are the topic in our field. A
    comparison of the analytical solutions with the numerical
    investigations is also an object of the research.
