This seminar provides the theoretical and practical knowledge required for a confident experimental stress analysis, which can be used for verification of FEM models. This Master Course (Course 3) in compliance with VDI/VDE/GESA 2636 ideally complements Course 1 (The Basics of Strain Gauge Installation and Strain Gauge Measurement Technology) and Course 2 (Measuring with strain gauges—planning, connecting and analyzing) in this series.

Your HBM Academy Plus

Comprehensive training ranging from strain measurement through stress determination to component assessment.

Target group:

Engineers who evaluate strain measurements.

Prior knowledge:

Course 3 is a follow-up to Course 2 (Measuring with strain gauges - planning, connecting and analyzing), and therefore, completion of Course 2 is a general prerequisite. Course 1 provides the basics of strain-gauge installation and strain-gauge measurement technology. Knowledge of technical mechanics, acquired in university or through qualified further education programs, is a further prerequisite.
