Paper Title:
Design Practical FBG Sensor Applied to Bridge Health Monitoring
  Abstract

Monitoring systems based on fiber optic technology have proved to exhibit meaningful benefits when compared with the current solutions of an electricnature. A novel low cost sensing system for measuring temperature, strain and pressure based on practical fiber Bragg grating (FBG) to be embedded into concrete is given in this paper. At the same time, the main principles of multi-parameter are introduced. The wavelength scanning demodulation system based on continuous wave tunable frequency is designed. The practical FBG sensors have been successfully used in monitoring cable-stayed bridge’s health monitoring. The system's conception, the adopted sensors network architecture, and the practical installation of a monitoring system based on FBG sensors are discussed. The experimental results indicate that practical FBG sensors can monitor the structure parameters for a long time, as well as have higher stability.
