In this paper, corrosion in overhead line foundations in different field environmental conditions (plain, agricultural and coastal/industrial region) have been detected by non-destructive test methods such as Half-cell potential test, Ultrasonic pulse velocity test, Rebound hammer test, chemical analysis of soil and Transmission Line Tower (TLT) footing concrete samples and scanning electron microscope (SEM) analysis of deteriorated tower footing concrete. The collected soil samples have been analyzed for chemicals and the TLT coping concrete samples have been tested using scanning electron microscope. The correlation between the test values, mineralogical composition of soil and concrete samples at tower footing level is presented.
