Characterization of Low Fusion Alloys / Metals with Embedded Optical Fibers
New materials and structures for advanced aerospace, marine and transportation applications demand the development of sensing and control systems which are capable of optimizing structural properties in response to particular external disturbances. Optical fiber sensors embedded in such structures may be used as life cycle sensors to monitor the way in which the composites and metal structures are fabricated, the in-service lifetime performance conditions of the material, and the onset of material degradation due to a variety of causes including fatigue and impact damage.
