Airbus Embedded DTG's in Composite Wing Structure

26/09/2017

A demonstration project whereby FBGS’s draw-tower gratings (DTG®) have been embedded in a composite wing structure in a real production environment at a renowned aeronautical composite plant is presented in a recent Sensors publication. The results present strong evidence of the performance of these embedded optical strain sensors for structural health monitoring. The analysis of the fiber sensor measurements show a good consistency and correlation with other reference measurements. For more details, please click here.
