Accounting for the transverse sensitivity of strain-gauge transducers

  • V. P. Chirimanov


The article deals with known methods of accounting for the longitudinal and transverse sensitivity of straingauges by means of coefficients k0 and κ.

It is shown that the determination and application of these coefficients in calculating stresses is only possible when the Poisson coefficient is known precisely.

Other strain-gauge sensitivity coefficients are suggested whose experimental evaluation does not require knowledge of the Poisson coefficient.

Examples of applying the new coefficients in formulas for computing stresses in various types of canopies are provided.
