Automatic monitoring of the strain in steel is used to calculate structural loads and stresses.
Monitoring is needed for assessing the condition of structures and for preventing loss of stability caused by excess loading. The most common applications include monitoring of concrete and metal structures such as tunnel linings, piles, foundations, bridges and dams.
To accommodate different monitoring purposes, FinMeas delivers a variety of strain gauges with different gauge lengths and patterns. Strain gauges are simple to install and can be directly embedded in concrete. The central processing unit of this device transfers the measurement data automatically to FinMeas Online, which provides easy access to up-to-date measurement data from any device.
