TIE BAR STRUT

 

The Strut Tower consists of a lower outer tower and an upper inner tower.  A hydraulic Telescoping Jack allows the upper tower to telescope partly out of  the lower tower, against even a substantial opposing load. 

The Tie Bar Strut serves the purpose of creating the proper load distribution between the three sets of Tie Bars.  Tightening of the Tie Bars is obtained by telescoping the Strut Tower.

Look at the man at
the end of the Jib !
