Experimental Stress Analysis

Applications of Strain Gauges

  • Experimental study of stress in transport vehicles
  • Experimental analysis if stress in mechanical and civil structures such as buildings, pressure vessels, towers, bridges and dams
  • Experimental verification of theoretical stress / strain analysis
  • Assist failure analysis
  • As a sensing element in transducers for the measurement of forces, loads, pressure, displacement, torque , etc

Strain Gages

The most common method of measuring strain is with a strain gauge. A stain gauge is a device whose electrical resistance varies in proportion to the amount of stain or stretching a device under goes.
