On-line Monitoring of SRM Grain Structure Based on embedded FBG Sensor
Xi’an Hi-Tech Institute, Xi’an, Shanxi 710025, China
This paper proposes the use of FBG (Fiber Bragg grating) sensors for SRM (Solid Rocket Motor) grain structure continuous Structural Health Monitoring(SHM) as they are generally considered as the preferable solution in flammable and explosive environments, due to their electromagnetic interference immunity and their inherent electrical and explosion safe characteristics. The processes of SRM manufacturing(curing of propellant and demoulding) were monitored. The curing degree of the propellant can be monitored by wavelength change of the FBG sensors, and this provides a new monitoring method for curing of the propellant grain. The monitoring of the demoulding process shows that the sensor is very sensitive to the tensile and compressive stresses on grain and can be used for on-line monitoring of grain in a mechanical environment. In monitoring simulated debonding test, the failure process of crack initiation, expansion and direction all can be monitored by the FBG sensors. After the crack is produced, the location of the debonding can be determined by the variation of the different sensors.
