Paper Abstract

Fiber optic sensors were embedded into a 7.5 MW hydroelectric dam during its construction phase. Power generation began at the facility during the spring of 1993 as did initial verification of the on-line use of certain key embedded sensors. Reliability information, as well as structural vibration signatures for the dam, has been obtained under various operational regimes. This information as well as the initial perspectives from builders, owners, users, and regulatory officials regarding embedded sensors is presented.
