Compared with electric sensors, Fiber Bragg Grating (FBG) sensors are immune to electromagnetic interference, corrosion resistant, small in size and light in weight. Therefore, FBG sensors are easy to bury into geotechnical soil mass, measuring strain and temperature simultaneously. Focused on buried pipeline integrity, a type of sensing network made up of FBG sensors is introduced in this paper, monitoring pipeline strain, landslide surface displacement and inner displacement. An application of the sensing network to a huge landslide affecting a gas mainline is also introduced. The field experimental data show that, the FBG sensors have many advantages such as good real-time monitoring ability, flexible to develop sensing network, convenient to realize long-term monitoring. Moreover, the FBG sensors give reliable long-term monitoring data of pipeline strain and surface and inner displacement of the landslide, which provide the basis to evaluate pipelines integrity affected by landslides.
