Abstract
This paper discusses the use of Fibre Bragg grating sensors (FBG) in structural health monitoring (SHM) of Fibre reinforced polymer (FRP) aerospace structures. The diminutive sensor provided the capability of embedding inside FRP structures in order to monitor vital potential locations for damage. Some practical problems associate with manufacturing process of FRP with embedded FBG sensors, interrelation of distortion to FBG spectra with damage, and interpretation of FBG spectral responses for identifying the damage will be discussed.
