Fiber Bragg gratings are utilized for this purpose. Results show that the flexibility of the structure plays an important role on the impact dynamics, which is found to completely differ from the impact of rigid structures. The overall deformation of the shell follows the first mode shape of vibration of a free ring, while the stresses are influenced by the superposition of the higher mode shapes that are excited during the impact.
