Fibre Bragg Grating (FBG) sensing provides an innovative and effective solution to real time structural health and performance monitoring. It is a technology that allows dynamic and accurate strain and temperature measurements along optical fibres and the manufacturing of extrinsic sensors such as accelerometers, and tilt and displacement meters or temperature gauges.
The aim of this one-day course is to provide an overview of FBG strain and temperature sensing capabilities and the opportunities it can offer, and to demonstrate how it can be implemented to monitor the health of civil infrastructure.
