Questions with Strain Gauges

  • Ask: What does a strain gauge measure?

    Answer: A Strain gauge (sometimes refered to as a Strain gage) is a sensor whose resistance varies with applied force; It converts force, pressure, tension, weight, etc., into a change in electrical resistance which can then be measured. ... As their name indicates, they are used for the measurement of strain.

  • Ask: Where are strain gauges used?

    Answer: Strain gauges are used to measure the torque applied by a motor, turbine, or engine to fans, generators, wheels, or propellers. This equipment is found in power plants, ships, refineries, automobiles and industry at large. Power is obtained by measuring the strain and rotational speed on a shaft.
