13 November 2002 Thermal compensation of Bragg grating for structural health monitoring
Author Affiliations +
In recent years, fiber optic sensors have been used for structural health monitoring because of the advantages they have over conventional strain gauges, such as multiplexing capability and immunity to electromagnetic interference (EMI). In addition, they have ability to monitor multiple parameters simultaneously, which is of significant benefit to researchers. However, this diverse sensitivity can cause "cross coupling" leading to imprecision in measurement. In this paper, we report our results on the development and testing of a temperature compensated fiber Bragg grating strain sensor. Results show that the proposed sensor structure can be used to effectively compensate for temperature variations in strain measurement.
