The Concrete Surface Mounted Strain Gauge is used for measuring strain in concrete structures including load bearing concrete beams and piles.

A high carbon steel wire is held in tension between a fixed point and a movable point within the sensor.

The physical changes measured by the sensor result in small changes to the position of the movable point which results in a change to the tension of the wire.

The wire may be excited by either plucking or sweeping via a coil adjacent to the wire. The resulting resonant frequency (which is

relative to the tension of the wire) is then recorded by the same coil. The reading can be displayed by instrument readout or recorded by data logging equipment.
