Task Committee on Fiber-Reinforced Composite Structures for Overhead Lines of the Structural Engineering Institute of ASCE


Part of: Recommended Practice for Fiber-Reinforced Polymer Products for Overhead Utility Line Structures

Abstract:

Generally, little or no preventative maintenance is required on fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) poles. This chapter discusses factors that could affect the performance of FRP poles after installation, suggests field inspection methods, and provides basic maintenance and field repair techniques that can be used to extend the life of FRP poles.
