The classic, definitive work on strain gauge measurement

The strain gauge has become an essential tool in stress analysis, part optimization, safety testing and technical investigative work. It is also a major component used in the manufacturing of measurement transducers.

Get a complete overview of the topic of "An Introduction into Measurements using Strain Gauges" - in Karl Hofmann's #1 reference book on stress analysis using strain gauges. In this 250-page, richly-illustrated book, Karl Hoffmann describes, in plain language, the fundamentals of strain gauge measurement, ranging from gauge selection through analysis and evaluation of acquired data.

You can also download the pdf of the book "Practical Hints for the Installation of Strain Gages" by the same author .

Additionally, the pdf "Structural Integration of Strain Gauges", referring to the structural integration of strain gauges in fiber composites for stress analysis purposes, is available for download below.
