Abstract

We have derived, based on established practice in experimental mechanics, an equation for calculating the thermal apparent-strain sensitivity of phase-modulated, surface-adhered, fiber-optic strain sensors. This formulation permits the thermal performance of fiber-optic strain gauges to be compared with conventional resistive gauges. This sensitivity for commonly used fiber-optic sensors is summarized.
