Paper Abstract

Previously, the results of embedding multi-axis fiber gratings into adhesively bonded joints were discussed. This paper presents more information on the testing of the adhesive joints and techniques employed to successfully embed a fiber grating sensor into such structures. These techniques include orienting the fiber, marking its orientation, and preparing it for embedment into the adhesive. Also discussed are strain relief methods for the egress of the fiber.
