Temperature Compensation in Deformation Testing for Smart Concrete Structures
Carbon fiber reinforced concrete (CFRC) structures exhibit both strain sensibility and temperature sensibility, which are coupled with each other when used in traffic or health monitoring for concrete structures. This coupling property results in inaccurateness of measured deformation. In this paper Four-probe Difference Method is used to detach the above two effects according to loaded conditions of structures and different characteristics of the two effects. The theoretical and experimental results indicate that the method is feasible and effective.
