Paper Abstract

For an embedded LPG bending sensor, in which the its resonance coupling strength changes with bending curvature, cross-talk issues between temperature and bending curvature arises if it is to be deployed in non-controlled environments. A 2 x 2 matrix method was thus employed for simultaneous measurement of bending curvature and temperature for the embedded LPG bending sensor. The matrix is made up of bending and temperature coefficients from 2 different fiber-types LPG; one is H2-loaded and the other is Bo/Ge co-doped. To find out the percentage error, a random test has to be carried out and the matrix was deployed for calculation. From the test results, the percentage error achieved for curvature measurement yields less than 6%. For temperature measurement, the percentage error fluctuates between 1.56% and 5.4%. The use of simultaneous measurement of both bending curvature and temperature enables researchers and engineers to measure bending of structures more accurately.
