The objectives of the field trial on the TsingMa Bridge are to monitor the strain of different parts of the bridge under railway load and highway load, and to compare the FBG sensors' performance with conventional resistive strain gauges already installed on the bridge.
Riveted grating was first developed and used in subways in New York City in the early 1900’s. Over the years this product has been used in various applications but has been particularly successful on bridges requiring a lighter weight decking material. The lighter weight helps reduce the dead load on the bridge which is particularly
Optical Fiber Sensors Guide . proposed in the mid 1960’s as an adequate informationcarrying medium for telecommunication applications. Ever - since, optical fiber technology has been the subject of considerable research and development to the point that today first observed the formation of a photoinduced grating in a germania- doped
Nowadays, fiber optic technology has been used in sensing. Using the distributed optical fiber sensing technology in the landslide monitoring, the linear strain distribution information of the whole landslide can be obtained, and adopting the Fiber Bragg Grating sensing technology in the landslide monitoring, the key pot strain and displacement information can be gained.
The distribution of a number of FBG sensors throughout the bridge and the attachment the instrumentation to this bridge on a periodic basis are a much more efficient solution. This is only one of the good examples to demonstrate the effectiveness of the fiber Bragg grating strain sensors.
