Technology and Practical Use of Strain Gages : With Particular Consideration of Stress Analysis Using Strain Gages Hardback
by Stefan Keil
Strain gages are used in all areas of engineering, and in large quantities.
This book is a comprehensive basic compendium about the application of strain gages.
It serves to explain the use of strain gages as an introduction, instruction for use and reference work for all fields and involved parties.
The application-related description of the principles of the measurement, installation and experimental set-ups derives from the author's own experiences in the field.
Particular emphasis is laid on the correct planning and assessment of measurements.
The algorithms for the stress analysis are explained in great detail.
Extensive information and explanation about fastening on various object materials and a guideline for quality check are given.
All kind of circuits are described and step-by-step guidance for preparation and performing the determination of mechanical stresses, thermal stresses, and deformation is given.
All explanations are practice-oriented and include adhesives, cable properties, temperature and moisture influence as well as signal processing and calibration. The book includes numerous real-life application examples, which can be considered as samples for the solution of similar tasks as well as for interpretation of the results.
Comments help to avoid typical mistakes. A brief historical review about strain gage inventions looking at the "who, when and how" round off the work.
This work is an indispensable reference work for structural engineers, mechanical engineers, materials scientists and related disciplines.
