Recent advances in fiber optic technology and the possibility of its use in civil structures has instigated the development of a number of research activities in the civil engineering community. Fiber optic sensors, and smart structure technology have been successfully employed in space and aeronautics applications. With minimal research, these technologies can be applied to civil structure and can help protect our infrastructure.
This report describes the current state of the art for this emerging technology. Topics include: techniques for measurement of strain, temperature, pressure and magnetic fields; smart structure technology; applications in fracture mechanics; and embedment in concrete.
