Paper Abstract

Optical fibre Bragg grating sensors have been field-trialed for the monitoring of dynamic loading of fish-plates, stretcher bars and switchblades on a tram network, with the aim of developing a condition monitoring system. This paper provides preliminary data showing the ability to identify changes in track/component condition.
