Three different fibre Bragg grating strain sensors were tested for their suitability for measuring high strain. The sensor types were: a bare epoxied fibre Bragg grating, a standard fibre Bragg grating epoxied into a metal capillary and, finally, a metal coated fibre Bragg grating brazed into a metal capillary. The sensors were calibrated on a steel specimen up to 1400MPa (equivalent to 7.3mε). The results show that the bare epoxied Bragg grating and the metal packaged grating are suitable for measuring strains of this level.
