Strain gauges are ideal for verifying stress and displacement simulation models. The strain gauge measurements are taken at specific locations and correlated with the simulation results.
Modeling assumptions such as boundary conditions, contacts, and loads may be updated to make the simulation better fit the observed behavior.
Once the model accurately reflects the measurements, more detailed information about the system can be inferred.
In addition, simulations of the modified system can be used to predict behavior with confidence.
SimuTech Group specializes in both strain gage measurement as well as simulation, allowing seamless support when conducting investigations.
The strain-sensitive alloy employed in the foil grid is critical in determining a strain gage’s working properties. Learn the benefits and utility of each alloy type.
Strain gages come with two types of backing materials, along with corresponding alloy combinations, unique manufacturing features, and created as micro-systems.
Considerations for the Strain Gage Series selected must include that of specific test profiles, such as strain type, operating temperature, measurements duration, and more.
When possible, the gage length should be no more than 0.1 times the radius of a hole, fillet, notch, or corresponding dimension of any other stress raiser. Learn why.
