Paper Abstract

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