Dates announced for course teaching the fundamentals of strain gauge installation

HBM has announced the dates for its ‘Fundamentals of strain gauge installation on plastics / fibre reinforced composites’ training course, which takes place on the 18th – 20th May 2015.

This three day seminar provides both practical and theoretical advice and covers a variety of topics, beginning with an introduction to the fundamentals of strain gauges (SGs), which looks at the fundamental relations between strain, mechanical stress and electrical resistance and the characteristics of SG installations on plastics.  

The course also includes other essential training on strain gauge installation with both hot and cold curing adhesive; connections of strain gauges for measurements; installations of SGs in composites and plastic casts; installation planning; calibration of measurement chains; and determination of strains with unknown principal direction.

Suitable for all personnel who would like to learn how to install strain gauges on plastic and fibre reinforced composites, no prior knowledge is required to participate in the course.

Located at the Woodland Grange Conference Centre, Warwickshire and presented by Dr. Henrik Brutlach, the course will enable attendees to distinguish the differences between strain gauge installations on fibre reinforced plastics from standard installations, through a mix of sound knowledge and practical guidance.
