Paper Abstract

Over the past twenty years considerable advances have been made in new optical fiber sensor technology able to measure physical parameters as a function of linear position. Such advances are of interest to the civil engineering community who have the problem of implementing measurement systems which can provide data on the structural state of health of large constructions such as bridges. This paper reviews the background to the measurement problem and outlines the relevant optical fiber techniques which have been considered in this context. The potential and the limitations of these measurement approaches is discussed.
