Paper Abstract

This paper describes an advanced application for fiber Bragg grating (FBG) sensors. We report the results of an autonomous crack response monitoring that was performed with a highly efficient, modified monitoring unit, performing static long term measurements and the simultaneous recording of dynamic events at the same time. A crack displacement sensor with an adjustable measurement range for the measuring of fast-sampled short term data as well as for the long term behavior of a critical structural damage of a civil building is presented.
