Past few years CEEFC of USQ has been developing SHM systems using novel sensors including Fibre Bragg Grating (FBG) sensors, to monitor structural health/integrity of advanced composite structures. Advanced composite structural componets with embedded FBG sensors have been tested under various loading types in order to understand the the behaviour and spectral responses of embedded FBG sensors at several failure modes of composite materials. This paper details some of the results obtained from few research projects on SHM using FBG sensors which are being undertaken by CEEFC collaboration with the industry.
