Abstract
The use of fiber optic sensors for the internal state measurements of large civil structures has been increasing in recent years. In many instances, sensors are embedded into the reinforced concrete structure is an attempt to measure a single parameter of interest. Installation and preliminary measurements obtained from a suite of fiber optic sensors which were embedded into a 67 m steel truss bridge spanning the Winooski River in Vermont (USA) are presented.
