Paper Abstract

Steel cable plays an important role in modern infrastructure due to its special characteristics. Because most of structure load is transformed to the cable tension in cable stayed structures, it is very important to monitor cable tension. Being a slender element, Fiber Grating Strain Sensor is sensitive to axial strain and is regarded as a most prospective way to monitor the cable tension. The paper reviews a series of problems of FBG when embedded into the cable, and introduced five different embedded FBG strain sensors. Principle, characteristics, and application states of these five sensor has been discussed in details. The prospective of embedded FBG Strain Sensor for cable tension has been forecast.
