Abstract
A network of distributed optical Bragg grating sensors is used for monitoring of a full scale laboratory bridge in its pristine and damaged state. Damages consist of a series of cuts that are introduced in an external girder to simulate fracture or fatigue crack of a main load carrying bridge component. The after fracture behavior is described in terms of load path redistribution and strain level changes in the structure.
