Development of an Optic Fibre Sensor System for Acoustic Emission Sensing in FRP

Abstract:

Article Preview

In this study an optic fibre system for health monitoring of fibre reinforced plastics was developed. It is based on the detection of acoustic emission (AE) waves in a loaded material. A low-finesse Fabry-Pérot interferometer sensor is used as alternative to the conventional piezoelectric transducers for AE waves sensing. An original procedure for optical fibre sensor interrogation is proposed.
