For measuring strain
Vibrating Wire Strain gauges measure strain within a wide range of media including steel and concrete the data from which can be used to calculate a wide range of parameters including load, stress and pressure.
The weldable version can be fixed to steel load-bearing beams, tunnel segments, struts, sheet pile walling and tendons whereas the embedment type is suitable for direct burial and can be used in pile tests, load bearing concrete beams and columns, tunnel segments and concrete foundations.
Can be read with a portable readout or connected to a data logger for automatic data acquisition.
