Paper Abstract

FBG strain sensors are more and more accepted in the area of structural health monitoring, especially in civil infrastructures. However, due to the fact that FBG senses both strain and temperature simultaneously. And moreover the wavelength shift induced by 1°C is almost equivalent to that induced by 10με. So temperature compensation for FBG strain sensors of long-term structural monitoring is indispensable. In this paper, based on the FBG's strain and temperature sensing principles, the techniques of dual FBGs temperature compensation and the environmental temperature compensation are brought forward. The experiment of cement paste curing monitroed by dual FBGs was carried out. And the advantage of the technique of dual FBGs temperature compensation are proved, which is proper for long-term structureal monitoring system for civil infrastructures.
