Abstract
The thickness of zinc-coating thickness was a parameter of significant importance on steel transmission towers. When the zinc-coating’s thickness does not meet the required standard, the tower’s steel members were easily to be corroded. However most current detection methods focusing only on the total thickness of steel coatings, and the thickness of zinc-coating can hardly be measured by existing methods. This paper presents the experimental analysis of different methods of zinc-coating’s thickness’ measurement. Comparison was conducted and the most accurate and practical measuring method was proposed.
