Two different force measurement technologies are mainly used today: Piezoelectric sensors and strain gauge based sensors. The first sensors using fiber Bragg grating technology are available now. Fiber Bragg based sensors have become increasingly important over the past years in the field of experimental stress analysis. In addition to the advantage that these sensors cannot be influenced by electromagnetic fields another major benefit is their impressive fatigue life at highest strain levels.
