Paper Abstract

We present a prototype fiber-optic temperature, pressure and skin friction sensor suite for possible use in a deep water petroleum pipeline containing corrosive, multi-phase flow with solid particulates in a pressure and temperature gradient. The sensor suite is designed to measure shear stress ranging from 0-1,000 Pa, temperature from 0-175 Deg C and pressure from 5-69MPa. Each transducer was individually tested over the entire performance range. The integrated sensor package was tested over a limited temperature, pressure and shear range due to facility limitations.
