What are strain gauges and what types of strain gauges exist?
Strain gages are usually installed on a surface whether it is for stress analysis or sensor production. A strain gauge indicates the strain of material or structure at the point where it is installed. When a material deflects the strain gauge will vary its resistance. This change can be used to determine force, weight, pressure, tension, compression, torsion and torque.
