1 May 1992 Possibilities for the use of strain gauged reinforcement in smart structures
Author Affiliations +
A technique for measuring reinforcement strains in reinforced concretestructures is described which uses electric resistance strain gauges installed in alongitudinal duct machined within the reinforcement to avoid degradation of the bondcharacteristic at the steel/concrete interface. Details of experimental work using thistechnique are given and typical results presented to demonstrate its performance.Possible developments for use in smart structures are discussed.
