INVITED PAPER: Overview of Rayleigh-Based High Definition Distributed Fiber Optic Sensing for Structural Testing and Health Monitoring Applications
Abstract »Over the last several years, high definition distributed fiber optic
sensing (HD-FOS) has become widely used in many applications that
relate directly to structural health monitoring. HD-FOS differs
from standard distributed fiber optic sensing in that it can achieve
very high spatial resolution measurements of the distributed strain
within or on a material or structure. Strain resolution down to the
millimeter level can be achieved over tens or hundreds of meters,
opening up many new applications for structural testing and in situ
structural health monitoring. This talk will introduce HD-FOS as a
measurement technique and review multiple application examples
relevant to structural health monitoring.
