Strain Gauge Applications

Strain Gauge Applications

A strain gauge is a type of electrical sensor used to measure the change in strain running through a device

As force is applied, the resistance within the strain gauge will change, this change in resistance can be measured and converted into a usable format. They are usually applied onto a surface without any pre-existing external forces.

Strain gauges can be used to measure pressure, weight, tension, force etc depending on the type of device they are used with. 

When an object is put under pressure they are two forces working against each other; Stress and Strain. Stress is the internal resisting force of the object, strain is the displacement and deformation that takes place as a result of the pressure being applied 

Strain Gauge Applications 

Strain gauges can be used for any different applications and has almost unlimited uses. Some of the more common industries for strain gauge applications are; rail, aerospace, mechanical engineering and research and development.

Strain gauge applications within these industries;
