The purpose of the proposed research is to study the structural behavior of monopole towers with and without camouflaged with different heights of towers 30m and 35m for the basic wind speed of 44.44m/s,39m/s as per latest current code ANSI/TIA 222-H. Most studies and research have shown only structural behavior of monopole towers with other type of lattice towers. Proposed research is very important due to the fact that the structural engineer faces the challenging job of designing and constructing telecommunication towers to support all loads in open weather with high degree of reliability. Free standing lattice towers are generally used in all over the world. As per the recent surveys, mobile towers in the world are likely to grow very fast due to the introduction of 5G technology which requires more antennas on the towers, with existing monopole towers already occupied with lot of antennas with no structural capacity to withstand extra load on towers. New camouflaged designs in monopole are going to study in this research to improve monopole structural capacity and structural behavior to withstand new loads. Environmental and economic pressures have initiated to seek improved design approaches to make communication towers more environmentally acceptable and cost effective. Since monopole structures have smaller dimension and require lesser space for installation, they can be used as a suitable alternate for lattice towers. Some researchers observed in their study that monopole towers have higher lateral displacements and lesser monopole structural capacity than self-supporting towers. In this proposed research a new camouflaged technical design is developed to study the structural behavior of monopole towers. This research shall be helpful for determining lateral displacement(tilt)of monopole, monopole capacity and effect of wind speeds for different heights of monopole towers with and without camouflaged under the influence of wind load.
