Abstract
Corrosion of rebar is one of the most important factors which can affect the durability of concrete structure, so in the service of these structures, measuring the degree of corrosion, and then evaluating the reliability of these structures are very important. The most significant characteristic of the rebar corrosion is its volume expansion. By the principle and characteristics of fiber bragg grating (FBG), a sensor for rebar corrosion is designed. In this paper, based upon laboratory studies, the fiber bragg grating sensor is applied in No.58 Berth of Lianyungang Port. According to the filed condition, a proper embedding scheme is proposed. Considering the optimal sensor placement, the monitoring points are determined and five sensor groups were applied in the structure. Based on the results of the calibration experiment, the relationship between corrosion ratio and the change of wavelength is established. So the corrosion status of the structure can be obtained by measuring wavelength. The study shows that the FBG sensor was feasible to monitor the status of rebar in concrete structures.
