Title (EN) Angular Displacement of Flexible Pipe
(FR) DÉPLACEMENT ANGULAIRE DE TUYAU SOUPLE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A method and apparatus are disclosed for determining a bending radius of a flexible pipe. The apparatus includes at least one bend sensor element comprising an elongate flexible substrate and at least one bend sensitive element on the substrate that has at least one electrical characteristic that is responsive to angular displacement of the substrate. The apparatus also comprises a flexible crush resistant elongate housing that supports and surrounds the bend sensor element.
(FR)L'invention concerne un procédé et un appareil pour déterminer un rayon de courbure d'un tuyau souple. L'appareil comprend au moins un élément de capteur de courbure comprenant un substrat souple allongé et au moins un élément sensible à la courbure sur le substrat qui a au moins une caractéristique électrique qui est sensible à un déplacement angulaire du substrat. L'appareil comprend également un boîtier allongé résistant à l'écrasement souple qui soutient et entoure l'élément de capteur de courbure.
