Tee Pattern Strain Gages: Multiple Sensors - One Backing

They are also used where direct tension measurements, such as a bolt in tension or suspension rod in compression, is desired. A full bridge in this situation minimises pickup due to bending. Tee rosettes can also be deployed for bending measurements, especially useful on large infrastructure such as wind turbine towers. 

 

Adjacent gauges on the same backing will see identical temperature and therefore eliminate thermal outputs due to differential temperatures across the structure. Additionally, 45° alignment marks are provided on each T-Rosette gage so it may be accurately applied to a shaft to measure torsion. Refer to TechNote 515.
