Strain Gage Linear Patterns (Uniaxial Stress) 

The gage pattern refers cumulatively to the shape of the grid, the number and orientation of the grids in a multiple-grid gage, the solder tab configuration, and various construction features which are standard for a particular pattern.

 

The linear pattern strain gages are used to measure strain in a single direction. Linear Pattern strain gauge sensors are used for both general use application: Fatigue Testing , Concrete Testing, Crack Propagation, Dog Bone testing
