This paper presents an application of the finite element method and boundary element method to determine the distribution of the elongation. Computer simulations were performed using the computation of numerical algorithms according to a mathematical structure of the model and taking into account the values of all other elements of the fiber Bragg grating (FBG) sensor. Experimental studies were confirmed by elongation measurement system using one uniform FBG.
