... are mostly of ACSR construction. Because electrical conductor (high-purity) aluminum cannot bear its own weight over long spans, one or more layers of aluminum wire strands are assembled around a steel wire cable core. The aluminum bears the electrical load, and the steel the mechanical one. Such cables...
