Mex., and the study conducted to determine the effects of operation of the structures antenna in regard to flexural movement of the core of the structure and the foundation slab. Specifically, this study was conducted to determine the displacements, frequencies, and direction and phase of movement of the TTR structure, and the acceleration, rise time, maximum velocity, and deceleration of the antenna movement.
