Abstract

In this paper, we show the new structural monitoring project of the central beam pipe of the Compact Muon Solenoid Experiment (CMS) at CERN. The measurements are carried out by means of a system of Fibre Bragg Grating (FBG) sensor arrays glued on the central Beam Pipe of CMS. The system consisting of FBG sensors represents the ideal solution to manufacture a reliable and accurate sensing system to be used 24/7 in the harsh environment in CMS. The mechanical complexity of the structure is described and the first strain (temperature compensated) measurements data recorded during the LHC operation throughout 2015 are discussed.
