Abstract
Over past few years, the concept of structural health monitoring has been emerging as a new area of research. Fiber Bragg grating (FBG) based sensor offers a new sensing approach with a number of advantages over conventional sensors. This new sensing technology is suitable for the harsh environment of construction industry due to its robustness, ruggedness and ease of installation. Two unique advantages of FBG based sensors are immunity to electromagnetic interference and multiplexing capability. This paper reports some of the results of a multi-disciplinary program on the FBG based sensors involving the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering and the School of Civil and Environment Engineering at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore.
