Abstract

Metal beam strain detection may offer valuable insight into health monitoring for large-scale steel structures. This research presents, to the best of our knowledge, the first implementation of ultra-weak fiber Bragg gratings for the deformation detection of a double-clamped beam because of their higher multiplexing and denser detection points compared to fiber Bragg gratings. The measured values are entirely consistent with those determined by strain gauges applied for reference and demonstrate that the strain of each sensing point increases linearly with the load at the middle of the beam. The errors of different loads at different load points between inversion maximum deflection and measured displacement are less than 9.59%.
