Chirped fiber Bragg grating (CFBG) sensors were embedded within the adhesive bondline of single-lap CFRP-GFRP bonded composite joints. The effect of disbond propagation (as a consequence of fatigue loading) on the reflected spectra from the CFBG sensor has been studied. As the disbond propagates, thermal strains generated during the bonding of the joint at elevated temperature are released and, as a consequence, a peak in the reflected spectra of the CFBG sensor can be seen. Using a transparent GFRP adherend, it has been possible to demonstrate that there is reasonable agreement between the position of the peak in the reflected spectrum and the disbond front position in the bonded joint.
