Application of fiber optic sensors to fracture mechanics problems
Date of Original Version
An experimental study is conducted to show the application of fiber optic sensors to fracture mechanics problems. Mode I stress intensity factors are obtained using single mode optical fibers in single edge notched specimens fabricated from aluminium. A Mach-Zehnder interferometric set up is used during the experiments. The experimental results compare well with theoretical predictions. © 1991.
