Modern road lighting is an important issue for every city, as its function ensures greater safety of pedestrians, drivers and other users of public areas. There is an increased usage of modern LED lamps, which raise the good name of howsoever small cities with their design and low energy consumption. However, every street lamp is subject to a number of natural and weather influences, in which it must operate properly and ensure its function.
At TECOS, we performed a static calculation of the street lamp for the client with the help of computer simulations in the Abaqus CAE software package. The client wanted to test the load capacity of the lamp in various load cases and different temperatures.
