These are: microbend induced analysis of curing signatures combined polarimetric and mode:mode interference sensing for simultaneous temperature and strain measurement distributed white light polarimetric sensing for the measurement of distributed dynamic strain. 3. I Cure Monitoring Using Microbend Signatures It is well known that a periodic microbend applied to the external surface of an optical fibre can induce loss within the fibre transmission path. This is for example used as the basis for the strain measurement systems described in Ref 4.

Impact detection and localization. Damage assessment (delamination in ACM). Debonding of reinforcing bars and prestressing tendons in concrete structures. Corrosion degradation. Chemical sensor for: acid rain, smog, bird droppings, deicing salt solution ...... Real time truck/aircaft weight and load distribution. Traffic flow patterns (number of vehicles, weight and velocity). Ground creep or seismic movement. Temperature distribution and anomalous hot spot detection. Some of the characteristic problems of facing the designer of a structurally integrated sensing system for monitoring concrete civil structures are: Small strains so need for high strain sensitivity.

Phase delay and polarisation measurements usually necessitate the exploitation of single mode fibre as a transmission medium. Such fibres have the inherent advantage that the core is well displaced from the surface of the fibre so that intensity fluctuations due to microbending can be minimised especially with high numerical aperture core materials such as heavily germania doped silica. The fibres can also be made polarisation selective by inducing form or stress birefringents into the core. Observations on the intensity transmittance of such fibres during the curing process have already shown that very little change in transmittance occurs under such circumstances.
