Example Given : A round steel rod is hung vertically, and weight is attached at the bottom to provide tension (positive axial strain), as sketched. L 1 = original length = 0.50 m D 1 = original diameter = 12.0 mm E = modulus of elasticity = 10 × 10 10 N/m 2 ν = Poisson’s ratio = 0.300 m = mass of the weight = 1000 kg To do : Calculate δ L = L 1 L 2 and D = D 1 D 2 . Solution : L 1 L 2 D 2 D 1 Weight, W

Example Given : A quarter-bridge strain gage circuit is constructed using R 3 as the strain gage, as sketched. The beam being measured is located a short distance from the bridge circuit. Unfortunately, the temperature at the location of the experiment fluctuates a lot, and the
