Strain data collected during the casting, curing, detensioning and storage of 4 prestressed concrete bridge beams manufactured at EXPLORE Industrial Park, Worksop, UK. The data was collected/generated for the ME01 project being carried out in the Department of Engineering at the University of Cambridge. The ME01 project is a fibre optic instrumentation and dynamic monitoring programme at Norton Bridge, UK, part of the Stafford Area Improvements Programme. The strain data was collected using fibre optic monitoring technologies based on Brillioun Optical Time Domain Reflectometry (BOTDR) and fibre Bragg gratings (FBG).
