Paper Abstract

The Finite Element Method (FEM) analysis about fluid properties in opening-up optical fibers which are designed for fluid sensor is presented. A FEM fluid-optical interacting model is founded by combining the Navier-Stokes equations and Maxwell equations. The analysis focuses on the relationships between fundamental sensing ability and fluid characters in the wagon wheel opening optical fiber which has one opening cladding holes. The Monte Carlo Method (MCM) is adopted for sensing error evaluation. 2D and 3D models are found for time-vary sensing analysis. The time-vary simulations show that the sensing result for dynamic fluid deviate from its static state. Some propose about opening-up optical fiber sensing design are presented too.
