Paper Abstract

In this paper an analysis is presented on the use of embedded optical fiber sensors in concrete elements and structures for the non-destructive measurement of internal stress and strain as well as for the assessment of structural integrity. A discussion of the fundamental materials and micro-mechanical aspects regarding the fiber/matrix interaction is given. In addition, a summary of the experimental results obtained to date is made along with the applications sought for this new technology.
