Dynamical analysis of the fiber optic coils through multiscale numerical modeling and modal tests

2022-4-28
Kahveci, Özkan
Fiber optic gyroscopes (FOGs) are common rotation measurement devices in aerospace applications. They have a wide range of diversity in length and winding radius of coils to meet the system requirements. Every dimensional parameter in the coil influences the dynamic response of the system, which eventually leads to measurement errors. In order to eliminate the errors and qualify the system, after the design and production stages, a deep and comprehensive testing procedure follows. In this study, the dynamic behavior of a quadrupole winded fiber optic coil is investigated. Firstly, a set of fiber optic coils are tested with an impact modal test, where mode shapes and natural frequencies are determined with structural data acquisition. For the modal analysis, a finite element (FE) model is developed where a representative volume element (RVE) analysis is also included to consider the influence of the microstructure properly. The experimental and numerical results are compared and validated. Moreover, an estimation model is proposed for a type of coil with different fiber length. Finally, the latter coil set is produced and tested employing the same methodology in order to illustrate the capacity of the developed framework.

Cildlr, Sema; Çakır, Serhat (2006-08-26)
In this study, analytic solutions were studied for propagation of electromagnetic waves in cylindrical fiber optic cable. An asymptotic approach was used to solve radial wave equation The solution was derived for zero order eigenvalue equation. It was found that this solution is more general than other methods. By using a computer program was obtained some diagrams for core and cladding region for different eigenvalue equations and modes.

Estimation of Deterministic and Stochastic IMU Error Parameters
Unsal, Derya; Demirbaş, Kerim (2012-04-26)
Inertial Measurement Units, the main component of a navigation system, are used in several systems today. IMU's main components, gyroscopes and accelerometers, can be produced at a lower cost and higher quantity. Together with the decrease in the production cost of sensors it is observed that the performances of these sensors are getting worse. In order to improve the performance of an IMU, the error compensation algorithms came into question and several algorithms have been designed. Inertial sensors conta...

The most critical part of a fiber optic MEMS microphone is the sensing element. The sensing element, membrane, is designed such that the microphone operates in the desired range with desired sensitivity. In this thesis, a MEMS membrane is designed and characterized which is aimed to be used in a fiber optic microphone with responsivity to the audible frequency range. This membrane is electrically deflectable and it has symmetrically located air holes. The design is microfabricated through the commercially a...
