Abstract
Composite utility poles have the potential to overcome many of the limitations of wooden poles that are currently widely used. Significant advantages include superior strength and uniformity, light weight for ease of deployment, the ability to be recycled reducing hazardous waste associated with chemically treated wooden poles, and compatibility with embedded fiber optic sensors allowing structural loads to be monitored. This paper describes the usage of fiber optic grating sensors to support structural testing of a 22 foot composite pole.
