Q 10. Does country of origin of steel has any role to play in quality of tower/steel?

Ans: In a situation, where it is not possible to measure the various parameters which affect the quality of material, country of origin of material may be considered to be a reasonable assurance of quality. Today, when all parameters, which have effect on quality , can be quantitatively measured, there is no significance or relevance of the origin of materials. Quantitative testing to ascertain value of desired properties should be used to establish quality of steel. For quality of tower to be as desired, the strength of steel should be as assumed by designer in his design calculations.
