This section contains detailed collection of articles that provide a step-by-step procedure for the installation of strain gages using various adhesives systems and protective coatings.
Find expert advice on all aspects of experimental stress analysis and the use of strain gages (gauges) in transducer applications. Whether your interest is in preproduction, bonding, soldering, lead wires, bridge circuits, protective coating, failure analysis, or creating complete weighing and measurement solutions, Technical Tips is your essential resource for techniques to obtain accurate, reliable data.
Our Technical notes are used to describe strain measurement methodologies and present techniques and equipment. We cover strain gage selection criteria, temperature affects, and other error corrections. We discuss Wheatstone bridge principles, including shunt calibration and non-linearity, as well as noise control and digital signal processing.
All you need to know about strain measurements including selecting the right gage, general techniques for installing our strain gages, attaching lead wires, bridge completion and protective coatings.
StrainSmart is a ready-to-use, Windows® based software system for acquiring, presenting, and exporting measurement data from strain gages (strain gauges), strain-gage-based transducers, thermocouples, temperature sensors, LVDTs, potentiometers, piezoelectric sensors, and other commonly used transducers.
We provide a wide variety of calculators with useful formulas to make things easier for you.
