Project: T143700 #3396

The objective of this project is to prepare a standardized work procedure manual dealing with the corrosion of the grillage footings, anchor rods and other directly embedded steel members of steel lattice towers, to be used by utility design engineers, maintenance personnel and asset managers for minimizing damage due to corrosion and extending the functional life of the steel supporting structures. The best practices for the backfill used during construction or refurbishment of below ground members will also discussed.
