An investigation of rail condition monitoring by Fibre Bragg Grating sensors
Ho, Tin Kin, Liu, S. Y., Lee, K. Y., Ho, Y. T., Ho, K. H., McCusker, A., Kam, J., Tam, H. Y., & Ho, S. L. (2009) An investigation of rail condition monitoring by Fibre Bragg Grating sensors. Hong Kong Institution of Engineers, Transactions, 16(2), pp. 9-15.
Condition monitoring on rails and train wheels is vitally important to the railway asset management and the rail-wheel interactions provide the crucial information of the health state of both rails and wheels. Continuous and remote monitoring is always a preference for operators. With a new generation of strain sensing devices in Fibre Bragg Grating (FBG) sensors, this study explores the possibility of continuous monitoring of the health state of the rails; and investigates the required signal processing techniques and their limitations.
