Paper Abstract

Optical fibre sensor technology has advanced rapidly in recent years, with a feature of current work a strong applications-focus which has become one of the major driving forces for innovation in the field. This paper focuses upon the nature of the background needs and the development of technologies well suited to tackling a range of problems in the assurance of the quality and stability of modern structures, and as a consequence the optimization and the minimization of the costs associated with maintenance of such structures. A number of topical sensor applications are considered and results of recent work presented.
