Abstract
In order to address application problem of fiber optic sensor in concrete, characteristics of concrete was analyzed deeply. Mechanical and metrological characteristics of both bare and packed fiber Fabry-Perot strain sensor were also analyzed in details. Modulus requirement and dimensional requirement of fiber strain sensor for concrete was deduced. A special measure of sleeve was proposed to get rid of drawback of packed fiber Fabry-Perot strain sensor in concrete. Corresponding procedures was also proposed to ensure survivability of the sensors when embedding fiber sensor into a concrete structure. An application example of fiber Fabry-Perot strain sensor network system in the Dafosi Bridge of Yangtze River at Chongqing has been presented to demonstrate the validity of this technique. With help of presented technique, 45 fiber Fabry-Perot strain sensors had been successfully embedded in 5 segments of gird during 9 months construction. The system was put into operation automatically from January 2003. Some typical results recorded by the system were presented. Constructing progress, tardo distortion trend, and temperature dependent fluctuation of gird was revealed in the result.
