Entuitive’s Tom Greenough and Ian Trudeau, in collaboration with researchers at Queen’s University, published a research paper on the topic of load testing in the Journal of Performance of Constructed Facilities.

The technical paper explores the use of fiber optic sensors to monitor reinforced concrete elements in situ during load testing. Capturing distributed strain measurements during load tests could potentially lead to more accurate assessments and optimized future designs.
