Title: INTEGRATION OF FIBER OPTIC SENSORS INTO SLEEVE
Abstract:
Systems and methods are provided for monitoring industrial equipment in operational state or subsequent to repair. In addition, systems and methods are provided for detection and diagnostics of equipment failure in order to inform of a cause of the failure and the timing of the failure. Moreover, systems and methods are provided for simultaneous repair and monitoring of the results of the repair by integrating sensors into the repaired area while performing the repair. A system for monitoring physical properties of industrial equipment includes a portion of industrial equipment, a fiber- optic sensor that measures the physical properties of the portion of industrial equipment, a sleeve placed over an external surface of the portion of industrial equipment, and an attachment layer placed between the sleeve and the portion of industrial equipment that attaches the sleeve to the portion of industrial equipment.
