From Figure 8, specific area of four-hole specimens experiences smaller strain propagation compared to specimen containing one-hole or two-hole pattern due to the redistributed stress and no stress passes through the hole, thus resulting in the lowest stress and strain at the area along the hole location, as seen in Figure 9, which also is a finding in the previous study [10].
As a result, specific area of four-hole pattern experiences smaller strain propagation due to the lowest stress areas.
It can be seen that the lag time of strain propagation is very short between elastic material and bare FBG, which can be ignored in engineering.
