Part of the International Centre for Mechanical Sciences book series (CISM, volume 429)


This section summarizes the results to analyse the behaviour of fibre Bragg gratings when submitted to longitudinal non-uniform strain fields, and to decode the strain field applied to the grating by integrating its spectral information.
