We report on two possible techniques of short distributed strain measurements along a length of a single fiber Bragg gratings (FBG). The first technique relies on the spectral shape, the second is based on the group delay response of the FBG. A theoretical comparison of the two techniques were made and later applied to determine the strain distribution around a hole in a loaded aluminum plate. Monotonically varying strain measurements were made with a spatial resolution that was dependent on the strain gradient at that point. A spatial resolution as small as approximately 0.8 mm was obtained over the steep parts of the strain variation.
