Abstract

Distributed fiber optic sensors allow the measurement of structural parameters, such as strain and temperature at thousands of locations along a single fiber sensor. This unique feature, having no parallel in conventional sensing systems opens new possibilities for Structural Health Monitoring of large structures and infrastructure systems. This paper firstly briefly introduces the most prominent distributed sensing technologies and components, including Brillouin and Raman Scattering sensor as well as Fiber Bragg Grating Sensors. Emphasis will be given to the sensor packaging and installation techniques. The second part presents several application examples, including monitoring of dams, bridges and pipelines. The main monitoring aims are identification of high strain areas, crack onset, leakage and temperature distributions.
