Electromechanical strain gage for measuring the deformations of structural plastics

  • U. K. Vilks
Brief Communications


By equipping a multiple-use strain gage based on a metal elastic element, whose natural mechanical stiffness is unacceptably high, with a spring-loaded mechanism forming part of the strain gage itself it is possible to compensate the force developed by the elastic element in the process of deformation.
