Welcome to SC B2 (Overhead Lines)


Our colleague and friend Charles (Chuck) B. Rawlins passed away. Chuck has been an outstanding engineer and scientist, besides having a very winning personality and a very subtle sense of humor. He will be for long and well remembered for his seminal papers, his invaluable contributions to our work and his friendship. Our thoughts are with his family.

Please read his obituary.
