Paper Abstract

A fiber Bragg grating (FBG) sensors network in the roadbed temperature monitoring system in Qinghai-Tibet railway is presented. This sensor network is composed of FBG sensor chains embedded in the roadbed, slave optical cables, work stations which include the FBG sensor interrogator and the optical router, master optical cables, and center workstation. We give the primary experimental results of this sensor network in monitoring the roadbed temperature of the railway at DK0985+000 near Chumar River. The temperature data was collected after a month when the temperature field in the monitoring hole became stable. This experiment had been carried out for more than one year. The FBG sensor network has successfully measured the temperature in the roadbed with an accuracy of 0.1 centigrade. Furthermore, the experimental result shows the stability and reliability of the FBG sensor network in the harsh environment of Qinghai-Tibet plateau. The prospect of the FBG sensor network in monitoring other parameters in the Qinghai-Tibet plateau is also presented.
