Strain Gauge Technology in Field Testing

Posted by Sensing Systems on Jan 19, 2016 7:46:15 PM

Strain gauges may be used in "smart bridge" technology to detect structural problems early.

Strain gauge technology has practically unlimited uses in the field. It can be used to test vehicles, ship hulls, dams, and oil drilling platforms. A simple civil engineering application using strain gauge technology is to install strain gauges on structural components in a bridge or building to measure stress and compare them to analytical models and stress calculations.
