Eaton, N.C., Drew, R.C., Geiger, H., Chivers, P.J. and Dakin, J.P. (1994) Finite element analysis of embedded optical fibre sensors In, 2nd European Conference on Smart Structures and Materials Glasgow 12-14 Oct 1994. Bellingham, US, Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers

Record type: Book Section


Micromechanical Finite Element (FE) analysis was used to model stress and strain fields in and around embedded optical fibres EOF'S) in flexural test coupons of carbon fibre composite. The coupons were used in studies of EOF effects on macroscopic laminate properties. The FE method allows complex material inhomogeneities, laminate boundaries and load conditions to be modelled.
