Fibre Bragg Grating (FBG) is a key technology for condition monitoring of different offshore oil and gas structures. FBG sensors are used to sense different physical parameters such as strain, temperature, vibration, etc. This paper investigates the effect of FBG sensor positions on the reflected sensing signal, to optimise the sensor positioning plan for structural health monitoring of offshore structures. Theoretical investigations were carried out on a cantilever beam to analyze the strain effects. Effect of different cantilever beam shapes, materials and their thickness on strain was investigated. Theoretical studies were also carried out to evaluate the strain sensitivities of FBG sensors. Furthermore, micrometer displacement based strain analysis of cantilever beam was carried out using FBG sensors and electrical strain gauges to study the positional influence and compared it with the theoretical results obtained.
