The paper presents an analysis of a 100-meter wind measurement guyed mast located in the north-western part of the United States, in the state of Oregon. Using the RFEM software [1], the influence of the wind on the mast was analyzed according to the guidelines of two standards: American TIA-222-H [2] and European EN 1993-3-1 [3]. The purpose of this work is to show the differences between the results of static computations of the mast in terms of the considered standards. Due to the limited content of the work, the icing load on the structure was ignored in the analysis and the focus was on determining the response of the mast only in terms of wind action. The author tried to describe the differences in this respect between the standard guidelines [2] and [3]. The comments and conclusions regarding the analysis of guyed masts presented in the article have some practical aspects and can be use in design practice.
