Abstract
High spatial resolution and sensitivity are required in distributed strain measurements for structural health monitoring. We have developed a distributed strain sensing technique with long gauge FBG sensors, which enables to measure strain at an arbitrary position along the FBG sensors with the high spatial resolution less than 1 mm based on optical frequency domain reflectometry (OFDR). In this paper this technique with a 1500 mm gauge length FBG was applied to monitoring strain distributions of a simply supported beam subjected to bending loads. The agreement between the measured strain and the theoretical one is excellent. Also we succeeded to identify the applied load by the inverse analysis from the measured strain distribution data, and confirmed the validity of these methods.
