This paper gives an overview of conceptual studies that have been realized since 2007 on 30 m towers for Dome C taking into account local available infrastructures and conditions. Some 30 m tower's concepts are presented and finite element simulations are carried to determine their dynamic behaviour including wind-induced vibrations, and to optimize their design.
