This video tutorial analyzes strain gauges and their main parameters along the required signal conditioning.
Some mathematical models are analyzed to identify the dependence of influencing quantities (temp, strain, etc..) on geometrical parameters.
The video also includes a brief overview of the main materials used and their advantages and drawbacks.
At the end, an experimental test is performed.
Ruben Crispino received his Bachelor’s degree in Electronics Engineering and the Master’s degree in Automation Engineering and Control of Complex Systems from the University of Catania in 2016 and 2017, respectively. He is now a Ph.D. student at the same university. His research interests include advanced multisensory architecture for ambient-assisted living and fluxgate magnetometer.
