FBG Sensing in Extreme Sample Environments

Last year a group from Los Alamos National Lab published two papers that detail experimental studies involving the use of a Micron Optics si155 optical sensing interrogator and Fiber Bragg Gratings (FBGs) in extreme sample environments. Some of these environments included cryogenic temperatures, large magnetic fields and applied hydrostatic pressures. The first paper titled, “An FBG Optical Approach to Thermal Expansion Measurements under Hydrostatic Pressure”, discusses an optical technique for measuring thermal expansion and magnetostriction [...]

Improved Analysis Tool for Concrete Pavements Using Fiber Optic Sensors

The University of Florida recently completed a research study to develop improved analysis tools with the capability of analyzing the horizontal cracking potential under environmental and traffic loading conditions for concrete pavements using 3-D finite element modeling and to also create an effective instrumentation plan for the US-301 Concrete Test Road. Non-conventional concrete pavements including ductile concrete slabs made with reclaimed asphalt pavement (RAP), precast prestressed concrete pavement (PPCP), and continuously reinforced concrete pavement (CRCP) [...]
