Distributed Strain Sensing (or DSS) is a fiber-optic sensing technology providing spatially resolved elongation profiles along a fiber-optic sensing cable. By combining multiple sensing cables at different positions in the asset cross-section, DSS is used to compute the asset (device under test) elongation (strain), shape (bending radius and bending direction), twist etc.
