Abstract:Creep has been pointed out as one of the main causes of non-structural cracking in concrete structures. Nevertheless, their behavior on concretes made with current materials is scarcely known. The use of real time health monitoring systems of strains in structures has been demonstrated to be a high potential inspection and maintenance techniques. The aim of this paper is to contribute for the publication of acquisition control techniques and strain results from a one month health monitoring period for Brazilian commercial concrete cylindrical specimens. For that, the equipment DataTaker and the DeTransfer software was used.
