Abstract: The main objective of the proposed work was to determine the efficacy of distributed fiber-optic sensing in the form of Brillouin Optical Time Domain Reflectometry/Analysis (BOTDR/BOTDA) and/or fiber Bragg grating (FBG) application to measure and model the spatial and temporal distribution of dynamic strains in a bed of manufactured clay in response to an applied impact load at its surface.
