Paper Abstract

Currently, fiber optic sensors are covering a great part of the automobile field, due to their precision, practicality and viability. At present, there are many theoretical and practical developments of fiber optic sensors focused towards the monitoring of thermal, torque and deformity variables, among other ones that are present in transportation vehicles. However, there is still a lot of exploration and investigation on this subject to be done, so that new analysis can be recognized and, consequently, new applications too. This work explains through MAPLE software, the computational analysis of the transverse electric and transverse magnetic modes generated in terms of Bessel functions, as a result of the light propagation through a fiber optic with different settings, proper of the type of sensor analyzed. This research exposes fundamental characters of measurement focused on the register of attributes of an object through. At the end, exposures and comments are made about the results obtained in graphics, showing the relation with the physical mathematical model described. The research for applications of this kind of technology is still scarce, for which it results necessary to investigate new types of analysis that can make possible the expansion of the technique to other fields of knowledge.
