Abstract

© The authors and ICE Publishing: All rights reserved, 2015. The use of fibre optic technology for monitoring geotechnical work has becoming increasing popular in the UK. The optical fibre is used as a sensing element, where the value for temperature and/or strain can be obtained from any point along the fibre. In the past decade the Brillouin backscattering technology has been widely used for a range of applications in the field of geotechnical engineering. It has clearly demonstrated an excellent capability for distributed strain and temperature sensing with many benefits over the conventional sensors. This technology has been used for numerous geotechnical installations in the past decades such as retaining/secant wall, deep foundations, energy foundations, slopes, tunnel pre-casted segments, tunnel linings, deep shaft panels, etc. A selection of studies from different applications will be presented in the paper, and this paper will map the development and justification of fibre optic monitoring technology and its contribution to the geotechnical community in the UK.
