Paper Abstract

Dynamic analysis of structures and machines provide valuable information on the performance and reliability of structures. In this paper, we present the development of a Fiber Optic Polarimetric Sensor (FOPS*) for dynamic and impact loading. The sensor monitors the change in the state of polarization of the light beam traversing the fiber under dynamic loading. The dynamic response of three different sensing optical fibers - high birefringence (bow-tie) fiber, low birefringence fiber and an ordinary communication grade single mode fiber are evaluated. The studies were carried out by embedding the optical fibers in a glass fiber reinforced plastic (GFRP) specimen and the performances of the three different systems were compared.
