Abstract. A mathematical model of the functioning of the indicator polymer piezoelectroluminescent (PEL) coating for diagnosing external mechanical effects - quasi-static pressing of rigid ball particles has been developed. The algorithm of numerical processing of informative intensity of light flux at the output from optical fiber built into indicator coating of optical fiber PEL-sensor is presented. A numerical analysis for the case of single mechanical effect revealed the regularities of influence of the values of the sensor spiral pitch on the informative parts of the resulting spectra of light flux intensity and pressure distribution along the length of the sensor spiral. Informative characteristic points of pressure spectra plots were revealed; these are points of maxima, abscissa and values of which make it possible to find the desired values of radius and pressing force of a rigid ball particle.

Key words: indicator polymer coating, built-in fiber optic sensor, mechanoluminescence, mechanical impact, numerical simulation.
