Paper Abstract

The effect of strain on civil structures is experimentally studied using fiber Bragg grating (FBG). The genetic algorithm is implemented to optimize the multiple parameters (Poisson’s ratio, photoelastic coefficient P11, and photoelastic coefficient P12) of the proposed sensor. The optimized results helped in increasing the sensitivity in terms of wavelength shift. It is observed that the proposed FBG provides maximum wavelength shift of 38.16 nm with Poisson’s ratio of 1.94, photoelastic coefficient P11 of 1.994, and photoelastic coefficient P12 of 1.8103.
