The Model FP4911 Fiber Optic Rebar Strainmeter is designed for measuring strains in foundations, slurry walls, precast piles, caissons, bridge abutments, tunnel liners, etc. The standard Model FP4911 (#4 rebar), known as the “Sister Bar,” is installed alongside structural rebar. The Fibre Optic element employed in this sensor makes it particularly suitable where dynamic measurements are to be made and/or on projects where other fiber optic sensors are deployed.
