The EM method is a valuable tool for Civil Engineering for estimation of the real stress in the prestressing tendons, quality control during construction period, calculating the stress loss due to friction and relaxation, long-time monitoring of stress changes due to concrete creep, temperature changes, traffic load etc. Overview of EM technique with practical applications in the Civil Engineering is presented. The new generation of EM measuring devices is based on more than 15 years experience, including health monitoring systems for the nuclear power plant and a large span cable stayed and suspension bridges. Examples of laboratory and field tests are presented, including uncertainty of stress measurement, long-time stability, resolution and reliability.
