|Abstract: ||This paper reports the instrumentation and monitoring techniques developed to
improve understanding of the early life behaviour of concrete industrial ground floor slabs.
Concrete strains, temperatures and joint movements were measured using vibrating-wire
embedment strain gauges and thermistors, whilst ambient conditions were monitored to assess
their effects. A reliable, accurate and easy to implement methodology, developed by
instrumenting 4 types of floor slab (mesh reinforced long strip, mesh reinforced jointed large area
pour, steel fibre reinforced jointed large area pour, and steel fibre reinforced joint-less large area
pour) is described in detail, along with the further developments and modifications to the
instrumentation. The methodology developed would be equally applicable to the early-life
monitoring of other concrete structural elements. Some sample results of data gathered using
the instrumentation methodology developed are included.|
