Abstract : This paper gives a brief description of the following: The geographical and meteorological conditions favourable for the formation of atmospheric icing; The history of iceload measurements; The procedure for determining ice-loads on transmission lines; The cost consequences for the transmission line as a function of design iceloads; Experience from maintenance; Field stations in operation. Their construction, methods of iceload measurements, instrumentation and problems concerning instrumentation; How the iceloads are treated in the tower design procedure; and Future works. (Author)
