Cracking in clay is an important phenomenon that affects the long-term durability of many civil structures such as dams, levees, embankments, and landfills….Distributed fiber optic sensors (DFOS) were embedded…for strain monitoring
DFOS describes several technologies that can be utilized to convert a fiber-optic cable into an array of distributed sensors....OptaSense has a range of interrogator units....When it comes to pipeline monitoring, DFOS systems can provide...leak detection, third-party intrusion and scraper tracking
AP Sensing’s novel solution addresses the need for monitoring storage tanks and pipelines….storage tanks are filled with chemicals that are flammable and oftentimes explosive…DFOS technology is becoming an increasingly popular method for monitoring critical infrastructures
US Army Corps of Engineers is currently implementing a levee improvement project,,,,With support from the National Science Foundation and USACE, the [Berekely Engineering] research team embedded optical fiber sensors
Dr. Kenichi Soga and the University of California, Berkeley received a $250,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Transportation Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) on August 17.
