Paper Abstract

In this paper, many of the critical issues which affect the application of embedded fiber-optic sensors for smart structures applications are identified, discussed, and - to a limited extent - experimentally verified. In particular, fabrication, durability, and characterization issues are addressed. The fabrication procedures for embedding these sensors into advanced composite components have been refined. This has been demonstrated with the successful fabrication of a 1.5 inch diameter by 58 inch long composite tube with an embedded fiber-optic pressure sensor. Preliminary characterization results using an optical time-domain reflectometer are presented.
