Paper Abstract

Primarily coated optical fibers for non-destructive monitoring of structures were embedded in cement mortar bodies and, in a separate test series, exposed to concrete-specific chemical attacks. Microstructure studies after four weeks revealed the relative resistance of acrylate-coated and flourine polymer-coated fibers. Polyimide-coated fibers showed serious changes in the coatings after the exposure.
