Residual Properties and Structure of High Mast Poles

In this project, the residual properties of materials from high mast poles after service are being investigated. The retaining nuts were found to loosen and allow some movement of the pole base, and possible stretching of the retaining bolts. This caused wear on the retaining bolts, indentation of the base plate and requires constant tightening. The residual mechanical properties of the various components as well as the microstructure and weld integrity will be determined. This is a joint University of Rhode Island (URI) and Brown University project funded by the Rhode Island Department of Transportation (RIDOT).
