Paper Abstract

This paper outlines the various steps considered in the design, development and application of a network of 294 optical fibre based strain sensors on a glass fibre reinforced rudder for a mine counter measures vessel. The sensing array is designed for use together with a vibration-based analysis tool to be implemented as an in-service structural health assessment system.
