Abstract

Fibre Bragg gratings (FBGs) in polymer optical fibres (POFs) have been used to measure the strain in a woven textile. FBGs in both POFs and silica optical fibres were attached to a woven textile specimen, and their performance characterised. It was demonstrated that the POF FBGs provide improved strain transfer coefficients and reduce local structural reinforcement compared to silica FBGs and therefore make a more suitable proposition for textile monitoring.
