Advances in fiber optic sensing technology have made possible the installation of an extremely precise and reliable sensor in small structural members. Because of the high sensitivity and fast response of the sensor, low strain and dynamic strain can be measured. In this study, a Fabry-Perot strain sensor was cast in a high performance concrete cylinder, which had been submitted to simple compression and thermal tests. These results were compared with measurements obtained using external linear… CONTINUE READING
