Abstract

Reinforced concrete cantilever beams were tested for flexure. Totally three strain gauges were used for measuring strains: two strain gauges on the reinforcement, one on the top of the rebar and another on the bottom of the rebar near to the end support and the third strain gauge was fixed on the surface of the concrete beam. Strains were measured by Data Acquisition (DAQ) system as well as manually. Demac buttons were fixed on the surface of the beams near the support to measure the strain manually and National Instrument (NI) DAQ card was used for assessing strain gauge data. Strains were measured for specimen with different corrosion levels. Good agreement was observed in measurement of strain gauges in mechanical and DAQ system
