This paper aims to put forward a nonlinear vibration method for crack detection based on fiber Bragg grating (FBG), which is used to receive the waves in the plate.
First of all, measuring principle of nonlinear vibration technique and FBG sensing principle are introduced. Then nonlinear signal spectrum is analyzed to reveal various models of nonlinear vibration, and modal analysis of the plate structure is performed to lay the foundation for the later experiment. This approach is the cross-modulation effect from a persistent excitation to the receipt signal.
The experimental system is built and its results are in agreement with theoretical analysis, and show that this nonlinear vibration method based on FBG sensor is sensitive to crack damage.
Taking the board structure as the object, a new attempt by nonlinear vibration detection with FBG sensor has been investigated.
