Abstract
The revolutions in the fiber optic telecommunication and optoelectronic industries have enabled the development of fiber optic sensors that offer a series of advantages over conventional electrical sensors. This development in combination with advances in composite material technology have opened up the new field of fiber optic smart structures that offers mechanical and structural engineers the possibility of incorporating fiber optic nervous systems into their designs.
