XY T Rosettes with 2 Measuring Grids for Analyzing Biaxial Stress States with Known Principal Directions
XY strain gauges of the T rosettes type have 2 measuring grids arranged at a 90° degree offset from each other. Typical applications for these strain gauges include analysis of a biaxial stress state with known principal directions as well as measurements on tension and compression bars.
With types XY1, XY3, XY7, XY9, XY10 we offer you a large selection of geometries and dimensions, each available with different temperature adaptations and different nominal (rated) resistances (120 and 350 ohms).
The measuring grid consists of constantan; the material of the measuring grid carrier is polyimide.
Further information regarding measurements with T rosettes is available in our brochure "Use of the Wheatstone Bridge Circuit" and in our specialist publication "An Introduction to Measurements Using Strain Gauges" .
