Abstract

Self-compacting concrete (SCC) is the most flowable concrete type that exerts high pressure on formwork. SCC is the most commonly used concrete globally for construction applications due to its cost-effectiveness. However, to make a formwork resist the exerted lateral pressure of SCC, it is required to have a suitable design for formwork. This paper presents a novel approach on how could create and prepare the Fiber Bragg Grating (FBG) optics using as a sensor to measure lateral pressure and temperature of SCC. To ensure the FBG sensor works properly a validated methodology is conducted. In the first stage, FBG sensors are calibrated with temperature sensitivity and then are calibrated with water pressure. The latter calibration is used to verify lateral pressure with SCC. However, this is not the only sensor used to record the result, a genuine sensor such as a transducer sensor has been positioned close to the FBG sensor to validate the results of the FBG sensor. The created FBG sensor demonstrates highly promising results, effectively validating the outcomes of the transducer sensor, while also reducing costs and enhancing usability for construction applications.
