Experimental measurements are presented of the stimulated Brillouin scattering (SBS) threshold in a dual-clad fiber amplifier with a single-mode core and an approximation is explored for calculation of the SBS threshold and numerical solutions for the coupled differential equations. Good agreement is shown between modeled and experimental data.
