Application of FBG Sensors in Shaking Table Test of Frame-Shear Wall Structure Model


Article Preview

In this paper, FBG sensors are used to monitor and analyze the response of reinforced concrete frame-shear wall model in shaking table test in order to study the placement of sensors and the protection of the transmission lines. Based on the experiment data, the destructive mode and dynamic characteristics in earthquake are obtained through (by) analyzing the dynamic response of the structures. The experiment results show that using FBG is effective in monitoring the structures.
