Abstract
In this paper, we reveal characteristics of static and dynamic distributed strain measurement using a long-gauge fiber Bragg grating (FBG) and a Delayed Transmission/Reflection Ratiometric Reflectometry (DTR3) scheme. The DTR3 scheme has capability of detecting distributed strain using the long-gauge FBG with 50-cm spatial resolution. Additionally, dynamic strain measurement can be achieved using this technique in 100-Hz sampling rate. We evaluated strain sensing characteristics of the long-gauge FBG attached on 2.5-m aluminum bar by a four-point bending equipment. Experimental results showed that the DTR3 using the long-gauge FBG could detect distributed strain in static tests and resonance frequency of structure in free vibration tests. As a result, it is suggested that the DTR3 scheme using the longgauge FBG is attractive to structural health monitoring (SHM) as dynamic deformation detection of a few and tensmeters structure such as the airplane wing and the helicopter blade.
