Fibre optics pile testing


The engineering consultancy Wentworth House Partnership wanted to perform Static Pile Load Testing on a bored pile at a construction site in London. They asked CSIC to install fibre optic strain sensors to generate a continuous strain profile and capture the behaviour of the pile during load testing and provide information about the load transfer.

CSIC’s fibre optic technologies have been applied to provide insights into structural performance and design, to monitor the construction process and for structural health monitoring. Applications have included understanding sprayed concrete linings in Crossrail’s London Liverpool Street Station and instrumenting concrete tunnels in CERN and piles and buttress walls at the London Bridge Station redevelopment.
