Strain and Force Measurement Trainer is an ideal setup for introducing strain gauge measurement to students. It introduces the operation principle of strain gauges and the conversion methods between electronic raw data and strain and force.

  • The trainer is used to test tension, torsion and bending to illustrate how resistance strain gauges work and methods of measuring strains in different structures. Can be used to demonstrate Young’s modulus and Poisson’s ratio.
  • Includes all required weight specimens and sensors to measure force and strain in the bending system, torsion system and in the tension system
  • The students will be able to calculate and test strains in the different metals and find their values of Young’s modulus. The tension system also finds and proves Poisson’s ratio for tensile and compressive strains in metals
  • The bending system uses gauges to measure direct tensile and compression strain.
  • The torsion system shows the use of shear/torque strain gauges. The tension system shows the use of two gauges at right angles.
  • Students will learn how to connect bridge type sensors, strain in bending, torsion, and tension, force measurement using load cells and measurements using the LVDT, …etc.
  • The trainer contains of : Strain Gauge, Load Cell, Weights LVD position sensor, Aluminum specimens for testing .
  • Software is provided with the trainer.
  • The Software is user friendly with easy to use interface .
  • Built-in safety features & limitations are includied in the software.
  • Trainees can use the software to perform different expirements
