A New Embedded Full Strain Components Sensor

Abstract : A new concept of strain (or stress) tensor sensor is presented. Fully embedded in the structure, it measures the full 3D strain tensor while suppressing its own influence, i.e allowing to find the strain (or stress) that would exist without the sensor, thanks to the Eshelby theorem. Furthermore, this theorem proves that the strain field is homogenous in the spherical (or ellipsoidal) body of the sensor, leading to perfect conditions of use for the six Bragg grating glass fibers which measure the strain of the body. After a brief overview of the theory, both mechanical and optical, we will present the results of the test performed using a prototype. This device is a simplified version of the sensor (3 channels) submitted to a hydrostatic pressure in order to assess the precision and the repeatability of the measure.
