Paper Title:
Structural Behavior of FRP Lighting Pole System
  Abstract

Street lighting system is an essential structure for the safety of traffic. Most of the lighting pole is made of steel and it is vulnerable to corrosion due to its hazardous surrounding environment. To mitigate such corrosion problems, stainless steel and iron steel are usually adopted, but they are also usually manufactured by hand, so it is not economical. Therefore, to overcome such problems new type FRP lighting pole is proposed. In recent years, FRP materials in the construction market are popularly utilized as an alternative for conventional construction materials. FRP material is known to have many advantages such as high chemical resistance, electro-magnetic transparency, high specific strength and stiffness, etc. In this paper, structural behavior of FRP lighting pole is compared with that of conventional lighting pole structures and we proposed the cross-section configuration of the FRP lighting pole with details on the manufacturing procedure.
