B3.1 - Increased Requirements for Higher Nominal Forces, Necessities and Possibilities to Measure Them

A. Schäfer
With the further advance in industrial applications the task of measuring high forces is getting increasingly important. Several new fields of application such as wind energy generation require forces of up to 5MN or higher. But also requirements in terms of accuracy are growing rapidly. So called foil type strain gauges are widely used as pick-up principle in force measurement. The vast majority of force transducers as well as load cells are based on them....
