Paper Title:
Latest Developments of Materials Used in Transmission Tower Structure
  Abstract

This paper discusses the status quo and development trend of transmission tower materials, points out that there will be higher requirements on the varieties and specifications of transmission tower material alongside the continuous construction of power grids. Tower materials will develop in the environmental-friendly, high-strength and conservation-oriented trend. In the future, the demand for Q420, Q460 high-strength and large-width angle steel will grow enormously; the steel tubular tower will be used in transmission lines more widely due to its excellent carrying capability; new materials like weathering cold-formed steel and composite material will be gradually used in transmission towers.
