Fibre Optic Methods for Structural Health Monitoring is organised as a step-by-step guide to implementing a monitoring system and includes examples of common structures and their most-frequently monitored parameters. This book:
- presents a universal method for static structural health monitoring, using a technique with proven effectiveness in hundreds of applications worldwide;
- discusses a variety of different structures including buildings, bridges, dams, tunnels and pipelines;
- features case studies which describe common problems and offer solutions to those problems;
- provides advice on establishing mechanical parameters to monitor (including deformations, rotations and displacements) and on placing sensors to achieve monitoring objectives;
- identifies methods for interpreting data according to construction material and shows how to apply numerical concepts and formulae to data in order to inform decision making.
Fibre Optic Methods for Structural Health Monitoring is an invaluable reference for practising engineers in the fields of civil, structural and geotechnical engineering. It will also be of interest to academics and undergraduate/graduate students studying civil and structural engineering.
