This article presents a strain measurement method using a singlemode‐multimode‐singlemode fiber structure sensor and an optical time domain reflectometer. A strain measurement range of 0–1000 με can be achieved with a resolution of better than 10 με. Using this method, a quasi‐distributed strain measurement can be carried out which is useful for a bridge or a civil structure strain monitoring. © 2013 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
