Surve, Sachin Ramchandra (2003) Interferometric optical fibre sensor for highway pavements and civil structures. PhD thesis, Victoria University of Technology.


Optical fibres have been used for developing variety of sensing configurations for monitoring a wide range of parameters. This thesis presents the design, construction and characterisation of a new type of single-transducer optical fibre Weigh-ln-Motion (WIM) sensor. The sensor is based on an extended (long) fibre optic Fabry-Perot interferometer. The Fabry-Perot arrangement was chosen for its simplicity, sensitivity, low cost and ease of installation.
