In the example pictured below, the lattice tower was analyzed for a colocation of cellular antennae. Wind loads, ice loads, and dead loads of the existing and proposed antennae and support structures were considered.

The stress level in each member was checked and compared to allowable values. For this example, no overstressed members were found, and the recommendation to proceed with the colocation was given.
