Paper Abstract

Fiber Bragg Grating (FBG) sensing technology was used to monitor a crevice of continuous beam joint and rails near rail expansion devices on a viaduct. The monitoring items consisted of rail temperature, rail displacement, viaduct beam displacement, and strain of sliding rail of rail expansion device. Strain sensor was a prefabricate FBG strain gauge; displacement sensor with different scale used a FBG stress ring; and the FBG of temperature sensor was pre-drawn and fixed in a metal tube. The monitoring results matched to the manual testing and theoretical estimate.
