Loading Tests on Overhead Line Structures
|Publication Date:||1 June 2002|
|ICS Code (Power transmission and distribution lines):||29.240.20|
This International Standard codifies the methods of testing supports for overhead lines.
It is applicable to the testing of supports and structures of overhead lines for voltages above 45 kV; it can also serve as reference to the testing of lower voltage supports.
There is no restriction on the type of material used in the fabrication of the supports which may include, but not be limited to, metallic alloys, concrete, timber, laminated wood and composite materials. If required by the client, this standard may also be applied to the testing of telecommunication supports, railway/tramway overhead electrification supports, electrical substation gantries, street lighting columns, wind turbine towers, ski-lift supports, etc.
Tests on reduced scale models of supports are not covered by this standard.
