||Structural Health Monitoring Made Easy with Fiber Optic Sensing
NBG Fiber Optics Group will present a webinar focused on structural health monitoring based on fiber optic technology (Fiber Bragg Gratings FBG & Distributed Strain Sensing DSS). We’ll present the basic principles and technology for FBG and Brillouin sensing which will include the key components that make up the system solution (interrogator, fiber optic cable and cable installation). We’ve chosen a few case studies (Bridge project and earth dam) that will provide a better understanding of the challenges and solutions involved in SHM projects.
NBG has teamed with Solifos and TU-Graz for this webinar. Dr. Werner Lienhart studied surveying in UK and Austria and is now a full professor at GrazUniversity of Technology, Austria. Werner has more than 20 years of experience in fiber optic sensing, published more than 100 scientific articles, and is president of the Austrian Geodetic Commission. Stefan Hörth heads up NBG’s sensing activities. Andrea Fasciati NBG has over 25 years of experience in customized fiber optics solutions.
