The FP interferometer was found to be feasible for detecting
changes in machining forces. The fiber optic sensor was able to detect
increases in strain corresponding to force increases detected by a
dynamometer. The FP interferometer system must progress in several
ways. A better data acquisition and data analysis system must be
developed. A robust sensor must be made to withstand the harsh
environment of machining. Also a method for eliminating the affects of
thermal strain must be created. Finally, the placement of the FP sensor
must also be determined. The FP has the potential to effectively monitor
machining forces without affecting the rigidity of a turning operation setup.
