Transverse Sensitivity Errors

A calculator for
Principal Strains
With any rosette having the same transverse sensitivity for each grid.

Independent Variables
Indicated Principal Strains (microstrain),
Transverse Sensitivity (%),
Poisson's Ratio* (nondimensional),

Dependent Variable
Actual Principal Strains (microstrain),

* The Poisson's ratio of the material on which the manufacturer's gage factor was measured (usually 0.285).
