Suggested Guidelines for Performance-Based Tests
Although several standard tests are cited in this chapter, these tests are not designed specifically for fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) overhead line structures. There are, in fact, no...

Quality Assurance
The user is responsible for ensuring the quality of products purchased. Therefore, the user of fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) products determines the level of quality that will be accepted....

Assembly and Erection
This chapter is intended to provide recommendations on transporting, handling, assembling, and erecting fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) poles. An important consideration is that FRP poles...

In-Service Considerations
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...
