Abstract : Atmospheric wind-velocity distribution in the area of the Obinskaya tower is investigated, as well as ice and frost formation on the tower. The purpose of the study is to obtain data for the calculation of ice crust and wind load factors affecting communications and power installations. A formula is derived to permit the calculation of normal ice crust loads on wires, cables and ropes when certain additional meteorological information is known. (Author)
