HBM now offers a choice of preferred types of strain gauges for experimental stress analysis in composites.
The new preferred types come with temperature response, measuring grid length and resistance perfectly matched to the requirements of measurements in composite materials. Moreover, users benefit from the preferred types' high availability and short delivery time, direct from stock.
As linear strain gauge or rosette versions, the new preferred types are also available with solder tabs with strain relief. This is an ideal solution, since the strain occurring in composites is often higher than in other materials such as steel.
The following strain gauges are currently available as preferred types for composites:
All other strain gauge types from HBM can also be matched to the requirements of composites, with a slightly longer delivery time.
