Abstract

This paper presents the application of inverse analysis to determine the stress distribution in a way that is insensitive to changes in temperature. For this purpose, a sensor with a fiber Bragg grating (FBG) was used. The paper discusses the direct solution of the task and presents the development and validation of a mathematical model of the Bragg grating sensor. Computer simulations were performed to apply numerical algorithms that completed the calculations according to the mathematical structure of the model and considered the values of all other elements of the FBG sensor. An experimental study was also conducted using a constructed measuring post.
