Strain gauge

Direct measurement of material strain is not possible. Therefore, the validity of Hooke’s law is used. It defines stress as the product of values of the elastic modulus and proportional deformation in the direction of stress when there is a uniaxial strain. Proportional deformations are determined by many measurement methods, collectively referred to as strain gauge methods.
The company has been working on strain measurement for many years and has found its application in many of the projects that have been carried out.

The company’s great advantage is the ability to involve several of its departments for a complete project analysis. The company’s project team is able to design a project in a way which connects the experiment with a simulation in order to obtain coherent information.

Examples of strain gauge measurements:

  • Determine the torque values on the armature spindle
  • Measurement of the proportional deformations on the selected parts of a harrow machine
  • Pressure vessel stress
  • Strain of a road carrier frame
  • Proportional deformation, fan blade and hub pressure
  • Measurement of pipeline strain at the Temelín nuclear power plant
  • Torque measurement on vehicle wheels in real setting
  • Residual stress measurement in a casting
  • Measurement of the proportional deformations in crash tests for the car safety development
  • Development of special sensors
