This study addressed a procedure to carry out an experimental study on a behavior of simple and continuous concrete beams. For this purpose, sample concrete beams were fabricated and sensors for the measurement of strains and deflections were attached both on the surface of the beams and inside them. Two types of sensors were used to measure strains associated with loading: electric resistance strain sensors and fiber optic sensors. Displacement gauges were also attached on the bottoms of beams to investigate the behavior of beams more rationally. The behavior of the beams was then evaluated throughout the results measured from different sensors while they were subject to steady loading up to failure. From results of this study, it was found that concurrent use of sensors and displacement gauges is helpful in investigating the behavior of concrete beams more effectively. Especially, combined-type strain sensors specifically fabricated in this experiment were found not to be affected by the occurrence of cracks so significantly and to be very effective in monitoring strains of concrete structure. It was also observed that beams show nonlinear force-displacement relationship and reinforcing bars take charge of resisting the external force once cracks occur in concrete beams.
