The elastic element to which the strain gage is attached deforms in response to the physical phenomenon (input) ME365 Bridge Circuits Slide 2 Galen King Purdue University that is of interest, for example, force, torque, pressure, displacement, acceleration, etc. Elastic Element Strain Gage Input Force; Torque; Pressure; ... Deformation Variable Resistance Q: How does one measure resistance variation? Expand resistance R into a Taylor series and ignore higher order terms: Strain Gage Strain Gage Strain Gage Strain Gage Active Axis Passive Axis R R R R R L L R A A R L L = + = + + where ME365 Bridge Circuits Slide 3 Galen King Purdue University Define Gage Factor G f : Resistance of wire: Resistivity Length of Wire Cross Sectional Area R L A L A = : : : v v v v A L A A A R R L L A A =- + = =- + = + + 2 2 1 2 ( ) dD G R R R R G f f = = + + = 1 2 1 Strain Gages Strain Gages Strain Gages Strain Gages Metallic Strain Gages: Gage Factor: G f = 2.0 ~ 2.2 R = 120 1 . = .44.8 Semiconductor Strain Gage Silicon (Si) doped with phosphorus (P), arsenic (As) or boron (B). ME365 Bridge Circuits Slide 4 Galen King Purdue University R = - 2.44.8 . Maximum gage current: 15 mA to 100 mA . Relatively low sensitivity to temperature variation. Gage Factor: G f = 100 ~ 175 R = 120 5 . High sensitivity to temperature change. Measure Resistance (Impedance) Variation Use constant voltage supply and measure current variation.
