Overview

Experimental stress analysis is an important tool in the overall design and development of machinery and structures.
While analytical techniques and computer solutions are available during the design stage, the results are still dependent on many assumptions that must be made in order to adapt them to the problems at hand. One popular method of finding structural and design weaknesses is through the use of the electrical resistance strain gage. These devices are relatively low in cost, easily applied by a reasonably skilled technician, and require little investment in instrumentation (for the general user), yet they yield a wealth of information in a relatively short time period. The information and its validity is, of course, dependent on the training and knowledge of the engineer who plans the tests and reduces the data. In addition to serving as a reference for engineers, this practical, instructive book has a high potential as a textbook for senior and first-year graduate students in engineering and related fields, such as engineering physics and geology.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Bonded Electrical Resistance Strain Gage has many very good examples and a good selection of problems, 154 altogether, with answers to about half. The typography, format, and illustrations are excellent. I enjoyed reading this book and working many of the problems, and recommend the book not only as a text for an introductory course on electrical resistance strain gages, but as a useful reference for engineers and experimentalists involved in the application of strain gages. It should certainly be in every engineering library." —Applied Mechanics Review
