Fiber Optic Sensing vs. Strain Gauges

Fiber Optic Sensing vs. Strain Gauges

Posted on by Pierrick Vulliez

Fiber optics sensing technology enables a paradigm shift to take place in the area of structural testing, specifically for strain and temperature sensing. Spatially continuous measurements along the length of thin, flexible, and virtually weightless optical fiber make it possible to develop a new set of tools that provide deeper insights into how materials react to both strain and temperature. One great example of this is the structural testing of full-scale aerospace structures. Thousands of fiber optic strain gauges can be installed on an aircraft in a fraction of the time required to install traditional strain gauges, making it economically feasible to collect strain measurements at thousands of sensing points.
