Abstract
Composite utility poles have significant advantages with respect to wooden utility poles that 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 reports tests conducted of fiber optic grating sensors in combination with an overcoupled coupler demodulation system to support structural testing of a 22 foot composite pole.
