Paper Abstract

Bridge engineering offer many unique opportunities for the use of advanced optical fiber sensing technology. In this paper, the state-of-the-art of bridge structural health monitoring system(SHMS) based on optical fiber sensing technology are reviewed and some disadvantages in present SHMS based on optical fiber sensing technology for existing long-span bridge are indicated. In order to overcome those disadvantages, some fiber Bragg grating (FBG) products developed by authors and corresponding industrialization enterprise are introduced. Focusing on an existing long-span cable-stayed bridge-Wuhan Yangtze No.2 Bridge, the operational condition of the multi-parameter bridge SHMS mainly based on FBG sensors is presented. Some initial monitoring results show that the whole performance of the SHMS FBGbased is reliable and measuring data are reasonable.
