Strain Gauges are one of the vital geotechnical sensors that measure strain in underground cavities, tunnels, buildings, concrete, masonry dams, bridges, embedment in soil/concrete etc. Any basic strain gauge sensor consists of an insulating flexible metallic foil backing. To measure the stress, the strain gauge is attached to the object using an adhesive. The deformation in the object causes the foil to get distorted thereby, changing the electrical resistivity of the foil.
Encardio-rite is the world’s leading manufacturer and supplier of some reliable, high-quality, and low-cost Strain Gauges.
Model EDS-11V Hermetically Sealed Vibrating Wire Strain Gauge provides the remote digital readout of compressive and tensile strain in dams, bridges, underground cavities, tunnels, mines, steel structures and other areas of application where strain measurement is required.
Model EDS-12V Vibrating Wire Sister Bar Strain Meter is designed for embedment and measurement of strain in concrete structures like piles, diaphragm/slurry walls, bridge abutments, tunnel lining, dams, foundations etc.
Model EDS-20V-AW Vibrating Wire Arc Weldable Strain Gauge is made up of stainless steel and has waterproofing to prevent any entrance of water. It is designed to monitor stresses in pressure shafts.
Model EDS-20V-E Vibrating Wire Embedment Strain Gauge indirectly determines the stress and its variation with time, quantitatively. This type of strain gauge is suitable for embedment in soil or concrete.
Model EDS-20V SW Vibrating Wire Spot Weldable Strain Gauge is spot welded or epoxy welded to steel and concrete structures.
Model EDS-21V Concrete Embedment Strain Gauge is directly embedded in concrete structures. It is specially used at places where strain measurement of up to 5000 micro strains is required.
The strain gauges are used in the geotechnical field to:
