Chapter 3 presents the signal processing techniques, the understanding of which is crucial in handling many transient signals normally associated with SHM. Part-II of the book focuses on the computational and simulation techniques associated with SHM. This part is spread over six chapters. Both conventional finite element method and spectral finite element method and their associated damage models are reviewed. In Chap. 4, finite element method in the context of SHM is presented. Here, different ways of modeling flaws and the various issues associated with FE modeling are presented.
Many fabrication method can be adopted, such as interferometric method, phase mask method etc. The length of gratings are normally in the range of 1–20 nm. When the input light is incident on the grating, some parts of it is reflected, while the others are transmitted. The principle on which the FBG works is based on the changes in the measured reflective signal, which is the center wavelength of the back reflected light from the Bragg Grating. This depends on the effective refractive index of the core and the periodicity of the grating.
13 Principle of operation of fiber bragg grating of FOS Hence the wavelength will shift with the change in the effective refractive index or the spacing of the grating. Such changes can be caused when the grating area is subjected to mechanical or thermal load. If De is the change in mechanical strain due to a mechanical load, and DT is the change in temperature due to thermal load, then these changes can be related to the Bragg wavelength change as Dkb ¼ aDe þ bDT a ¼ kb ð1 À pc Þ b ¼ kb ðaA þ aB Þ ð1:2Þ where pc is the strain-optic constant, aA is the thermal expansion coefficient of the fiber and aB is the thermal optic coefficient of the fiber.
