Structural Health Monitoring

SHM (structural health monitoring) is a measuring system based on the state of the art optical FBG technology with highly accurate static and dynamic measurements of various FBG sensors and detectors, allowing you to monitor many different physical parameters like temperature, strain, deformation, pressure, vibration, etc.

Technology behind the System

Fiber Bragg grating technology

A Fiber Bragg Grating (FBG) is a type of distributed
Bragg reflector constructed in a short segment of
optical fiber that reflects particular wavelengths
of light and transmits all others.
