OBJECTIVES
The objectives of this experiment are:
 
To practice using strain gauge rosette and strain meter to measure strain of aluminum cantilever beam under a point load at its free end.
 
To study the static behavior of aluminum cantilever beam subjects to bendingmoment.
 
To have a better understanding on two dimensional strain transformationequations.
INTRODUCTION
DESCRIPTION OF EQUIPMENT.
(1)
 
Strain Measurement Equipment.A commonly used instrument for strain measurement is a strain meter and itscircuit is based on the principle of a Wheatstone bridge. For most applicationsstrain gauges are connected using the quarter bridge configuration. This bridgearrangement contains one active strain gauge in the circuit as shown in
Fig. 1
.The meter readings record the strain of one active gauge.Strain gauges can also be connected using the half bridge configuration. Thisbridge arrangement contains two active gauges in the circuit as shown in
Fig. 2
.The meter readings in this case record the total strains of two active gauges. Thehalf bridge configuration is often used in the measurement of bending strain.(2)
