Abstract
A differential extrinsic optical fiber Fabry-Perot based pressure sensor has been developed and benchmarked against a conventional piezoresistive Kulite pressure sensor. The sensors were placed on the fuselage of a 1:10/3 sub-scale model of a Scottish aviation Bulldog, which was placed in a wind-tunnel. Pressure tappings that surrounded the sensors aided the mapping of pressure distribution around this section of the fuselage. The results obtained from the fibre optic pressure sensor are in good agreement with those obtained from the Kulite and from the pressure tappings.
