We’re All Getting Older: Accelerated Lifecycle and Fatigue Testing

Posted on by Pierrick Vulliez

Shrinking military budgets often necessitate the use of vehicles and aircraft well beyond their service lives. For example, according to STARS and STRIPES, among the Navy’s concerns is a rapidly aging Ready Reserve Force of 46 transport ships, which each … Read More

New Affordable Distributed Fiber Optic Sensing Platform Now available

Posted on by Pierrick Vulliez

Distributed fiber optic sensing has traditionally been a steep entry price technology to get behind. It has been a common issue for many years that has led many engineers to look for other alternatives when they see the price tag. … Read More

Fatigue – A clear advantage of Fiber Optics Sensing over Strain Gauges

Posted on by Pierrick Vulliez

One widespread application where FOS technology exhibits superior performance over foil strain gauges is in the fatigue testing of components, sub-assemblies, and full-scale structures. Demand for full-scale fatigue testing continues to increase, specifically in the aerospace industry where there is … Read More

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
