Paper Abstract

In the frame of the Forum project for the Swiss Expo2001 an experimental program on structural models is in progress. The structures of the Swiss Expo 2001 exhibition will be based on the Tensegrity concept. The behavior of these structures is highly geometrically non-linear and is relatively complicated to calculate and simulate. This pointed to the necessity of extensive testing and permanent monitoring of the structures. The tests are carried out on 1:10 scale models. In the paper the authors shows the application of fiber optic and whole field optical methods to control and monitoring the tests.
