n this paper, an experimental test performed on a hybrid steel plate girder was subjected to concentrated loads at the end of an unstiffened panel is presented. This load was intended to produce a typical reaction of the piers while launching steel girders in bridges. In this test, strain measurements were taken with conventional pre-wired gauges as well as with newly developed wirelessly connected strain-measuring system. Both measurements were carefully compared and the accuracy of the developed system was demonstrated. Results were also compared with numerical simulations deployed with FE models and on such a basis; the reliability of the developed wireless system was proven. Finally, suggestions of potential research trends in this area are provided
