Strain gage measurements provide a means to determine the strain, stress, and load on machinery components.
SimuTech’s team of test engineers has extensive experience in strain gage and telemetry measurements on a wide variety of machinery components and structures.
Strain gage measurements provide information for validation of finite element models (FEM), establishing safe operating loads, and failure investigations. Strain gages are suitable for high temperature and harsh environments.
SimuTech’s services include selection of gage size and type, specification of gage locations and orientations, gage installation, recommendations for bonding methods, and development of practical strategies for dealing with lead wire paths, connection terminals, clearances and gage environmental protection, data acquisition and analysis.
Recent strain measurement applications include heat exchangers, composite materials for space structures, and a robotic arm.
