Readme for Overhead Design Analysis (OHDA) 10.2.1a

Version 8

    OHDA 10.2.1a Release Contents

    Overhead Design Analysis (OHDA) is a powerful tool that analyzes scenarios to ensure design specifications comply with safety regulations and that structural limitations of materials are not exceeded before any field work is done.

    With OHDA you can evaluate the load on a pole and determine the amount of sag and tension necessary for a specific conductor under varying weather conditions. Analysis results ensure a conductor does not come too close to any structures, terrain features, or other conductors that lie beneath it. Unlike any tool of its kind, OHDA can leverage the power of Designer and ArcGIS to analyze scenarios in the context of their physical locations in the real world.


    All new functionality in the 10.2.1a release is outlined in What's New in Overhead Design Analysis (OHDA) 2.0?
