This book covers structural and foundation systems used in high-voltage transmission lines, conductors, insulators, hardware and component assembly.

In most developing countries, the term "transmission structures" usually means lattice steel towers. The term actually includes a vast range of structural systems and configurations of various materials such as wood, steel, concrete and composites.

This book discusses those systems along with associated topics such as structure functions and configurations, load cases for design, analysis techniques, structure and foundation modeling, design deliverables and latest advances in the field.

In the foundations section, theories related to direct embedment, drilled shafts, spread foundations and anchors are discussed in detail.

Featuring worked out design problems for students, the book is aimed at students, practicing engineers, researchers and academics. It contains beneficial information for those involved in the design and maintenance of transmission line structures and foundations.
