Abstract

An investigation into the capability of deformation monitoring using fibre Bragg gratings encapsulated in metallic packages is presented in the paper. The proposed approach relies on a grating inscription into a metal coated fibre and brazing the fibre into a metal capillary using induction heating. A metal rod instrumented with encapsulated FBG strain and temperature sensors is placed in an electromechanical tester and stressed up 80 % of its ultimate tensile strength. It is demonstrated through a 60 h experiment that the sensors are capable of real-time deformation monitoring.
