Paper Abstract

In this study we evaluate the measurements of a fiber Bragg grating (FBG) sensor subjected to a non-uniform static strain state and simultaneously exposed to vibration loading. The full spectral response of the sensor is interrogated in reflection at 100 kHz during two loading cases: with and without an added vibration load spectrum. The static tensile loading is increased between each test, in order to increase the magnitude of the non-uniform strain field applied to the FBG sensor. The spectral distortion due to non-uniform strain is observed to change once the sensor is exposed to a non-transient 150 Hz vibration spectrum. With high-speed full spectral interrogation, it is potentially possible to separate this vibration-induced spectral change from spectral distortions due to non-uniform strain. Such spectral distortion contains valuable information on the static damage state of the surrounding host material.
