Abstract
A spatially multiplexed high bandwidth WDM based fibre Bragg grating sensor system has been developed for structural condition monitoring and health maintenance of large civil engineering structures under both static and dynamic loading conditions. The system has been field deployed for real-time strain monitoring on a new 346m long steel road bridge in Norway. The bridge was instrumented with both fibre Bragg grating sensors and conventional resistive strain gauges at various points optimally identified. In this paper laboratory results from small-scale structures as well as field results on the real bridge structure are reported.
