Abstract

Since the introduction of the fibre optic distributed temperature system by York in 1986, the system has been successfully applied in a number of areas. The monitoring of hot‐spots in large power transformers and electricity cables to the analysis of the curing process in large concrete structures such as dams are some examples of where the technology is being used and is providing temperature data. Other more imaginative but nevertheless potentially feasible applications range from detecting black ice on roads to the monitoring of volcanic eruptions for the purpose of disaster prevention.
