  • Strain Gauges Explained
    A strain gauge is an electrical sensor which is used to accurately measure strain in a test piece. Strain gauges are usually based on a metallic foil pattern. The gauge is attached to the test piece with a special adhesive. As the test piece is deformed, so the adhesive deforms equally and thus
  • Introduction to Strain Gages
    Strain Gages (gauges): What is a Strain gage? A Strain gage (sometimes refered to as a Strain Gauge) is a sensor whose resistance varies with applied force; It converts force, pressure, tension, weight, etc., into a change in electrical resistance which can then be measured. A Strain gage
  • Strain Gage Technical Data
    sensitivity to strain. In a strain gage application, the carrier matrix and the adhesive must work together to transmit the strains from the specimen to the grid. In addition, they serve as an electrical insulator and heat dissipator. The three primary factors influencing gage selection are operating
  • AN118 Strain Gage SCMs (.pdf)
    The most dominant application of bridge circuits is in the instrumentation arena. Within these applications, the strain gage as a resistive element sensitive to displacement has been used extensively for a century. Today, process variables such as load weight, pressure, flow, distance, motion
  • Real-time Monitoring of 210 Strain Gauges
    To verify the mathematical modeling of a new train, the manufacturer engaged a firm of independent consulting engineers to verify the design and proof load the structure to ensure the design criteria had been met. Real-time monitoring of 210 strain gauges. Data Loggers for All Applications. 1 - 800
  • Medical Device Link . Strain and Short-Term Creep Behavior of Thermoplastics in a Luer Taper Fitting Application
    application, thermoplastic materials are typically chosen. One consideration in selecting a thermoplastic luer-lock material is the extent to which the fitting will strain and/or creep during its lifetime. Some luer-lock components are employed in short-term, single-use applications, whereas other
