Optical fiber sensing of strain in synthetic fiber tension members: recent results

Strain measurements on synthetic fibre rope constructions ofthe type used in marine applications are reported. The ropes are of a novel construction by virtue of incorporation of fibre-optic sensors for strain measurement. Two instrumentation approaches -a Brillouin strain measuring system and a RF sub-carrier strain measuring system -have been utilised to interrogate the fibre sensors.
