Paper Abstract

This paper resumes the nine year long experience of our group in the installation of fiber optic sensors in the most diverse structure types, including bridges, tunnels, dams, piles, anchors, historical monuments, nuclear power plants and many others. To date, we have installed about 1'500 sensors in almost 70 different applications. Statistics show that, by proper handling, it is possible to achieve 95 - 100% survivability during installation and for many years afterward.
