Abstract
Structural health monitoring using optical fiber sensor is very attractive for aerospace structures, because of lightweight, durability and capability to be embedded in composites. Especially, distributed optical fiber sensing system, such as Brillouin Optical Time Domain Reflectometer (BOTDR), is hopeful method for large-scale composite structures. However, it is necessary to solve some problems for applying to aerospace structures. Low spatial resolution, strain/temperature effect, and long measuring period are the capital problems to be solved. For solutions of these problems, we have already reported these solutions. In this paper, we present practical application of the proposed techniques through the demonstrator test. Firstly, we measured mechanical strain and temperature simultaneously during CFRP panel curing process using a combined system of BOTDR and fiber Bragg grating (FBG) sensors with wavelength division multiplexing (WDM). Secondly, we measured the distributed strain in the whole structure and applied differential spectra method for improvement of a spatial resolution.
