In structural health monitoring (SHM) placement of the sensors is often a problem and the more we can do to simplify this the better. In this paper, we will consider the case where displacement, angle and curvature is measured in the transition piece of an offshore wind turbine instead of the traditional solution where sensors are distributed over different heights of the tower. The two cases are investigated with respect to estimation of the modal parameters in an SHM application.
