Paper Title:
Long Term Underwater Strain Measurement on an Offshore Structure
  Abstract

A research wind energy platform was mounted in the northern sea. To understand the mechanical loading of this structure, over an extended period of time, a strain gauge installation capable of withstanding the rigorous underwater environment was required. Strain gauge measurements are made in a depth of 30m below sea level. Welding on the construction was prohibited. Development and testing of strain gauge protection system was completed to ensure the operation of strain gauge underwater for an extended period in the North Sea.
