Introduction to strain and strain measurement

March 16, 2020
This whitepaper teaches how strain gauges change resistance in proportion to applied forces that result from loading, torque, pressure, acceleration, and vibration. Topics include strain measurement, the Wheatstone Bridge, several application examples, equations, and example calculations. Also discussed is the shunt-calibration of a strain gauge bridge and sensor load cell calibration.
