In this study, a numerical model based on finite element method was proposed to evaluate the thermo-mechanical behavior of a composite structure material. The composite structure consisted of substrate, thermal spray coating, and an embedded optical fiber. The stress level of the composite structure especially the embedded fiber at the end of elaboration process was analyzed. The variations of refractive index of the embedded fiber due to the thermo-optic effect and the elasto-optic effect were investigated. The results showed that the the variation of stress and refractive index during the elaboration process had an insignificant effect on the embedding quality of the optical fiber under the presented optimized experimental conditions.
