Design and Application of Long Distance Oil & Gas Pipeline Stress & Strain Monitoring Sensor
As Oil & Gas Pipeline of Long Distance has potential mechanical risks caused by geologic hazards, based on sensing technique, Fiber Bragg Grating (FBG) strain sensor, for which unstressed grating temperature compensation method is adopted, is designed to solve problems of FBG temperature and strain cross sensitivity. According to experimental tests, strain sensitive coefficients of the sensor before and after sticking on pipeline sample are 1.20 pm/με and 1.09 pm/με in separate. Finally, applied to a landslide area for monitoring pipeline stress, the sensor got the impact of Wenchuan Earthquake on May 12, 2008 on the pipeline.
