Fiber Optics Sensing vs. Strain Gauges – Installation Effort/Complexity

Posted on by Pierrick Vulliez

Any experienced experimental stress analysis engineer would agree that the quality of a strain gauge installation greatly influences the accuracy of the measurement. Simply put, a strain gauge can only function as intended if the substrate strain is transferred to … Read More

Sensuron enables real-time structural health monitoring onboard X-56 NASA’s flexible wing aircraft

Posted on by Pierrick Vulliez

In contrast to the stiff, rigid wings found on most commercial aircraft, flexible wing technology is considered essential to next generation, fuel efficient aircraft. However, flexible wings are susceptible to “flutter,” or highly destructive aeroelastic instability. The Lockheed Martin X-56A … Read More
