Structural Health Monitoring Using Fibre Optic Methods

About this Research Topic

In recent years the use of optical fibre sensors has rapidly increased in structural health monitoring applications. Various civil, mechanical and manufacturing infrastructures are currently being sensorized to obtain real time structural health monitoring data that can lead to optimise their operation, reduce the maintenance cost and to avoid any catastrophic failures.
This special issue will focus on the current and emerging optical fibre sensing technologies for structural health monitoring applications, covering sensors and device development, field trails and reviews.
The expected coverage of this special issue are on the following topics (but are not limited to);
• Physical, chemical, and environmental optical fibre sensors for SHM;
• Multiplexing and sensor networking technologies for SHM;
• Distributed sensing methods for SHM;
• Interrogation techniques, data analysis and signal processing methods for optical fibre based SHM applications;
• Smart structures and sensors, including energy harvesting;
• Integration of IoT and data analytics with optical fibre methods for SHM
• Field trails and case studies on fibre optic based SHM.


Keywords: Fibre optic sensors, structural health monitoring, IoT, field trails


Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
