Strain Gauging

Vipac is a leader in investigative stress assessments of structures, machinery and rotating components using strain gauges.

Advantages of Strain Gauging:

  • Non-destructive validation and verification of existing structures and proposed designs.
  • Strain gauging provides a method to assess real-life loads and stresses against theoretical estimates.
  • Validation of strain enables verification of results from finite element models.
  • Custom software and data acquisition devices provide real-time evaluation of load and stress data.
  • Shaft torque telemetry systems enable measurement of engine and motor power and the assessment of torsional vibration.
