A mass of building standing alone and insulated, usually higher than its diameter, but when of great size not always of that proportion.
A structure appended to a larger edifice for a special purpose, as for a belfry, and then usually high in proportion to its width and to the height of the rest of the edifice; as, a church tower.
Tall structure usually either square or round and frequently forming part of a church.
Structure to which lighting instruments are attached.
Refers to a physical configuration of PC cases. The tower case is taller than it is wide and is usually designed to sit on the floor, rather than on a desk. Towers usually feature more bays for disk drives and slots for peripheral devices than other configurations.
A tall structure, usually square or round in plan, rising to a greater height than its surroundings. In houses, a tower is usually attached to the side or the middle of the structure, rises from ground floor level, and terminates above the surrounding roof.
A mast, usually of steel, used with cable extraction systems. Compare spar tree.
Although several tower-like structures can be seen in Uru, this particularly important one is in Ahnonay.
a structure for completing initial and final drafts of written reports. It includes the following steps: hink, rder ideas, rite, dit, and ewrite.
A structure very high in proportion to its horizontal size, rising from the ground or a building.
A steel mast or framework, generally protable, used instead of a spar tree for cable yarding. Standing tower- A vertical, telescoping steel tower, usually cylindrical in cross-section, which is portable and transported fromlanding to landing for cable yarding. b) Swing tower- A leaning tower, usually of lattice-box steel construction, mounted on a turntable and capable of landing logs to either side as well as in front of the yarder. See " swing yarder".
any structure designed to support communications equipment. It can be a tall building or wooden pole but is primarily used to describe a 3 or 4 legged steel structure built expressly for the purpose. Note that towers are generally designed and built to support the original dishes/antennas only and should be checked by a qualified structural or civil engineer before adding additional equipment.
A multi-story structure at the top of which is affixed a high- temperature furnace through which preforms are drawn into fiber.
A large metal structure that supports arrays of antennas.
a structure taller than its diameter; can stand alone or be attached to a larger building
a complex data structure, and describing it in detail can take considerable space
a high man-made structure
a high structure, usually man-made
a representation of a strong and well-founded structure
a steel structure found along transmission lines which is used to support conductors
a structure for holding the antennas for that specific trunking site
The supporting structure on which the wind generator and turbine are mounted.
The platform's entire structure.
The vertical structure in a suspension bridge or cable-stayed bridge from which cables are hung
A vertical structure upstream from a dam designed to control flow of reservoir water through the dam into power generating facilities.
The structure on which the antenna of a station emits its broadcast signal.
A vertical structure for antenna(s) that provide telecommunications services.
Itâ€™s a lot more windy high up in the sky than down on the ground, so taller towers mean windmills are able to capture more energy and generate more electricity. Towers are usually made from tubular steel, which is very strong, or steel lattice, which is less expensive.
The tower supports the nacelle and is most often a steel cylinder with an internal access ladder which provides access for maintenance and repairs. Because wind speed increases with height, taller towers enable turbines to capture more energy and generate more electricity.
A structure that supports a wind generator, usually high in the air. See also: Stationary, Tilt-Up
Any vertical projection which is significantly taller than it is wide. Towers in church designs were intended to reach toward the heavens and are referred to as spires.
A nuclear device mounted at the top of a steel or wooden tower and exploded in the atmosphere.
Tubular tower, made of steel, to support the turbine. Because wind speed increases with height, taller towers help turbines to capture more wind energy and generate more electricity.
A tall usually square or circular structure, sometimes part of a larger building and usually built for a specific purpose.
Towers are made from tubular steel (shown here) or steel lattice. Because wind speed increases with height, taller towers enable turbines to capture more energy and generate more electricity.
a manmade structure, higher than its diameter, generally used for observation, storage, or electronic transmission.
Structure supporting the lantern room of the lighthouse.
The vertical structure in a suspension bridge (or cable-stayed bridge) that holds up the suspension cables.
A tall structure. Generally, a tower is higher than it is wide.
A tower is a tall man-made building, always taller than it is wide, and usually much higher. Towers are generally built to take advantage of their height and can stand alone or as part of a larger structure.
