Abstract : Report 2 is a guide to commercially available instruments and equipment which can be used to automate measurements of structural behavior and environmental conditions at US Army Corps of Engineers' hydraulic structures. It also presents suggested methods to replace or retrofit existing instruments at Corps structures. Report 1 presented instrumentation automation techniques. Because of the many options which exist in selecting the appropriate hardware, the procedures in Report 1 for determining system requirements should be followed closely. Also, available software listed in Report 3 will influence system selection. Keywords: Computer programs, Concrete construction, Hydraulic structures, Measuring instruments.
