REDUCING EARTH GROUNDING ELECTRICAL RESISTANCE BY USING METALLURGY INDUSTRIAL WASTE AS BACKFILL MATERIALS
Abstract: This paper presents results from experimental research work involving the improvement of the electrical properties of earth grounding using metallurgy waste materials as backfill. It is presented that using this materials, which are this way recycled, decreases the earth grounding resistance improving safety and reducing costs.
