Paper Abstract

There are several applications in the area of traffic monitoring and control as well as road condition monitoring where fiber optic based sensor systems are advantageous. This study focuses on the use of fiber optic sensors to monitor the strain state in structures. This monitoring accomplishes two main tasks: it assesses the health of the structure and provides useful data for traffic monitoring/control applications.
