Paper Abstract

A technique for measuring reinforcement strains in reinforced concretestructures is described which uses electric resistance strain gauges installed in alongitudinal duct machined within the reinforcement to avoid degradation of the bondcharacteristic at the steel/concrete interface. Details of experimental work using thistechnique are given and typical results presented to demonstrate its performance.Possible developments for use in smart structures are discussed.
