Abstract

An optical method for evaluation of the environment of degradation in infrastructure materials is investigated. Development and application of fiber optics chemical sensors based on the evanescent field spectroscopic technique in the visible and near-infrared ranges of the electromagnetic spectra is reported. A method for detection of moisture and pH changes in structural materials such as reinforced concrete and fiber reinforced polymer composites is shown.
