Paper Abstract

Experimental strain gage techniques are developed for measuring thermal distortion to one-microstrain repeatability over moderate temperature variations from room temperature. A comparison of strain gage considerations such as foil alloy, gage resistance, bonding adhesives, leadwires, curing, stabilizing, soldering and other installation techniques are described.
