Welding Challenges in Steel Pole Transmission Structure Connections

The fabrication of slender tapered steel transmission pole structures often requires challenging welding procedures in complex details involving longitudinal seam welds, fillet welds, complete joint penetration (cjp) and partial joint penetration (pjp) welds in connections, splices and base plates. Discover challenges in successfully executing these welds and welding procedures as witnessed in shop inspections in this paper.
