One of the essential questions in material sciences and especially in the area of granular matter is, how to obtain macroscopic quantities like velocity-®eld, stress or strain from``microscopic'' quantities like contact-forces and deformations as well as particle-displacements and rotations in a granular assembly. We examine a two-dimensional (2D)(More)
In recent years, the observation of the behaviour of components during the production process and over their life cycle is of increasing importance. Structural health monitoring, for example of carbon composites, is state-of-the-art research. The usage of Fibre Bragg Gratings (FBGs) in this field is of major advantage. Another possible area of application(More)
