Book Preface

These proceedings contain papers presented at the 2009 Electrical Transmission and Substations Structures Conference sponsored by the Structural Engineering Institute of the American Society of Civil Engineers, held in Fort Worth, Texas, November 8- 12, 2009. This is the fourth specialty conference on utility structures, and begins an attempt to hold the conference on a three-year cycle. The conference originated to provide opportunities for utility engineers to gain further understanding of the industry through technical papers, workshops, plant tours, and networking with other utility professionals.

The electric utility industry faces the impending retirement of approximately half its workforce in the next 10 years. The planning committee designed every aspect of this conference to provide value and knowledge transfer to those in the transmission and substation structures sector of our industry. We specifically focused on the needs of the newer, less-experienced engineers and technicians, hence the title, “Technology for the Next Generation.” However, there was also plenty of value for seasoned veterans.

The conference included formal sessions on loadings, analysis and design, foundations, substation design, applied technology, and case studies. The session chairs and editor reviewed all papers included in these proceedings. All papers are eligible for discussion in the Journal of Structural Engineering. The papers are also eligible for ASCE awards.
