Paper Abstract

We report the results obtained on cure and strain field monitoringof unidirectional Glass Reinforced Plastic (GRP) composites with bonded orembedded white light quasi distributed optical fibre polarimeters. The importance ofthe optical fibre coating is shown. When it buffers stresses generated duringfabrication a purely linear measurement is obtained versus strain either in extensionor compression without any hysteresis.
