Proof of Concept of Impact Detection in Composites Using Fiber Bragg Grating Arrays
Impact detection in aeronautical structures allows predicting their future reliability and performance. An impact can produce microscopic fissures that could evolve into fractures or even the total collapse of the structure, ...
A Temperature Sensor Based on a Polymer Optical Fiber Macro-Bend
The design and development of a plastic optical fiber (POF) macrobend temperature sensor is presented. The sensor has a linear response versus temperature at a fixed bend radius, with a sensitivity of 1.92.10(-3) (degrees ...
