Paper Abstract

The authors have developed a fiber optic ground movement monitoring system using the optic Fiber Bragg Grating (FBG). A series of FBG's are glued to the outside of flexible plastic elements. These flexible elements are connected together to form a single probe. When the flexible element is bent, the FBG's sense the flexural strain as a result of the bending. Twice integration of the strains along the longitudinal axis of the probe yields the distribution of the displacement of the monitoring probe associated with the bending. The sensitivity and range of allowable bending of the monitoring probe can be adjusted according to the need in the field. The FBG based monitoring system has been experimented to measure the displacement distribution of a laterally loaded pile in Yuin-Lin, Taiwan. This paper describes the principles of the FBG sensor monitoring probe system and presents a case of field application of the sensor system.
