The Strain Gage Workshop is a hands-on program where each participant completes three gage installations using materials selected for suitability in a majority of test environments. The workshop is intended to develop proficiency in strain gage selection and installation.
In addition to the strain gage installation topics covered in the W65 program, the Strain Gage Technology Workshop includes a review of instrumentation. Workshop participants will make several complete strain gage installations, including electrical connections, check-out, and environmental protection; and use appropriate readout instrumentation to verify results of their own installations.
