Paper Abstract

Wood support is an essential element of the works of art and is highly sensitive to the environmental climate modification. Wood deformations may have irreversible destructive effects on the work of art. The use of fiber Bragg grating (FBG) sensors for the quasi-distributed in-situ measurement and continuous monitoring of the painted wood panel deformations is proposed. FBG sensors have high resolution low invasivity and intrinsic safety. The effects of relative humidity changes were measured on a wood panel, by monitoring the deformations in the wood structure using an array of fiber Bragg gratings glued to different critical points.
