Paper Abstract

We describe the monitoring of the dynamic strain response of an in-service I-10 interstate bridge due to traffic loading. FBG sensors were attached to the center support girder of one span of the structure. Using a fiber Bragg grating interrogation system based on a wavelength division multiplexer, the sensors were monitored for various vehicle loading conditions.
