Measurement of Strains

Mechanical stress is one of the most important dimensions, to value the load on machine components.

The application of strain gauges enables a simple and reliable method, to perform the analysis of strains in detail. Strain gauge measurements are absolutely indispensable in case of missing or inexact information of the load. Here, real operating loads can be determined without spoiling the test piece mechanically.

The technique of strain gauges offers the possibility, to measure the state of stress in one and two axis. By means of different techniques of applications and connection
  • Direct stress (tension and compression)
  • Stress of bending (bending moment)
  • Torsional stress (torque)
can be detected.
