The paper aimed at analyzing the base concepts to design a monitoring system for structures subjected to dynamic loadings, such as bridges and structures in seismic areas. Both traditional sensors, such as velocimeters and accelerometers, and Fiber Bragg Grating sensors are presented. For each of them relevant cases are recalled. Finally, in the simple case of cantilever beam a mixed system is used and the results are compared.
