Strain gages from Micro-Measurements, a Vishay Precision Group (VPG) brand, are used by the University of Florida SAE Formula Team to validate that new airfoil designs are producing the downforce required to improve cornering. Higher downforce improves corner traction, which results in higher G forces and therefore higher corner speeds to provide a competitive advantage.
This video provides a comprehensive product overview of the Micro-Measurements System 5000, 6000, and 7000 data acquisition systems with our StrainSmart® Software.
This training video covers the steps involved in bonding a WK-Series strain gage using M-Bond 610 Adhesive.
This training video covers the steps involved in properly soldering lead wires to a CEA strain gage and applying a protective coating to the gage.
This training video covers the installation of a CEA Strain Gage with M-Bond 200 Adhesive.
This training video covers surface preparation for strain gage installation on steel or aluminum alloys
This video provides an overview of the technical training programs offered by Micro-Measurements.
This video provides an overview of Micro-Measurements’ System 8000 StrainSmart® Data Acquisition System.
In this video, a strain gage is used to measure aerodynamic downforce in a race car. The video illustrates how the overall balance and performance of the car’s suspension system is improved by an enhanced airflow design based on measurements from Micro-Measurements strain gages.
This video introduces the single-channel strain sensor data acquisition tool for students. This Data Acquisition Systems is designed for use in applications where a convenient, low-cost, easy-to-use strain gage measurement is required.
This video provides a brief introduction to residual stress measurement using the hole drilling method, including the RS-200 milling guide.
