Mechanical Properties of Composites with Embedded FBG Sensors in Manufacturing Engineering
FBG (fiber Bragg grating) sensors are appropriate for embedding in composites manufacturing engineering. Influence of embedding FBG sensors on the composites tension, compression, CAI properties was studied in this paper. Results identified that the mechanical properties decreased obviously when a certain volume content of optical fibers embedded. FBG sensor permits the continuous monitoring of the host material when embedded in the middle 0 degree layer, consistent with strain gauges. Sensitivity coefficient of FBG sensor embedded is almost the same as that not embedded. It offers important reference value on the application of FBG sensors in aerospace composites.
