Paper Title:
Application of FBGs Grids for Damage Detection and Localisation
  Abstract

Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) technology allows significant improvement of safety of structures and ecological awareness. SHM systems allow users to reduce maintenance costs which are directly connected with non-destructive techniques used for monitoring of important structures. In this paper Authors present an applications of Fibre Bragg Gratings (FBGs) for damage detection and damage localisation in isotropic beam. FBGs sensors are excellent tools for evaluating conditions of a structure due to their sensitivity, small size and weight as well the immunity of the sensors to electromagnetic field interferences.
