    • Brief Summary: After using commercial FEA software, ABAQUS, to find the stress concentration point of the helicopter blade base, FBG sensor was embedded into the aerospace Fiber Reinforced Polymer (FRP) structure. A method of processing FBG signals were discussed due to a distortion of the FBG peak in the spectrum.
