Abstract

The present paper deals with the use of optical fibers with Bragg gratings for the identification of process-properties relations for composite structures. This study relates a 7 yearexperience in the field of process and mechanical characterization of composite parts. It highlights some major topics in terms of technological issues such as sensor integration, information discriminationand measurement accessibility. Results of process monitoring concerning autoclave cure and filament winding are shown through which initial states are identified. Finally, structural tests of instrumented parts are presented, showing the efficiency of the embedded sensors to allow test-calculation dialogues and thus properties identification.
