Fresh advances in fiber optic know-how, and the potential of their use in civil constructions has instigated the advance of a couple of study actions within the civil engineering group. This publication is meant for swift dissemination of present cutting-edge in this rising expertise. Fiber optic sensors, and shrewdpermanent constitution know-how were effectively hired in house and aeronautics purposes. With minimum study, those applied sciences should be utilized to civil buildings. Fiber optic sensors may help defend our infrastructure. This booklet includes information about: recommendations for size of pressure, temperature, strain and magnetic fields; clever constitution expertise; purposes in fracture mechanics; and embedment in concrete

These were able to pick up cracks in the concrete before they reached the surface. It is expected that strain gauge instrumented concrete structures could warm if any component was approaching its overload stress and in general monitor the state of internal strain. This might provide insight into weakness developing due to corrosion. Although this useful research has been undertaken to date using conventional foil strain gauges it demonstrates the kind of information that could be attained with much less work using fiber optic strain gauges.

In this paper we review the technologies which were investigated under the OSTIC programme including quasi static strain and temperature measurement, dynamic strain measurement, elementary cure monitoring and embedding procedures compatible with CFRP and GFRP resin matrices. The principal achievements of the project included the demonstration of materials compatible embedding procedures, combined temperature and strain measurement in a single fibre with resolutions of approximately 1°C and 50 microns of displacement and distributed dynamic strain sensing with a sensitivity of tens of microstrain over a gauge length of approximately 20cm.

The basic concept can be reconfigured to produce a fire monitoring (Ericsson of Sweden) in which the transduction process is effected via the expansion of a wax during its melting transition introducing localised microbend loss. Alternatively the fibre may be loose tube mounted and anchored at the ends thereby enabling a direct length measurement between the anchoring points which in tum can allow for strain and/or settlement measurement within the structure.
