International Product Management at HBM Test and Measurement
This webinar has been recorded and was originally held on May 12th, 2015 at HBM in Darmstadt, Germany.
For years, strain gauges have been producing reliable results in experimental stress analysis; especially in fatigue life analysis of fiber composite components. The effects of real or simulated loads on assemblies and structures can be evaluated using strain gauge measurement technology with excellent results.
However, due to the extreme hardness of the materials, the standard measuring equipment that is used now frequently reaches its limits. Sometimes a strain gauge oscillating for an extended period of time at a high load level, fails earlier than the component being measured.
In this webinar we will explore these challenges in more detail and provide solutions. We will discuss the displacement of an S-N curve using a new HBM product as an example. We will also look into optical systems as another useful tool for extremely high strain levels.
