Strain Analysis and Stress Analysis and Load Measurement Courses
Strain Analysis Course
11 -14 June 2018 University of Sheffield
This level 2 course introduces electrical resistance strain gauges and the associated circuits for strain measurement and transducer applications. It covers the installation of foil gauges using cyanoacrylate and epoxy adhesives, inspection of installations, the measurement of strain and load, and the use of rosettes to determine principal values.
Stress Analysis and Load Measurement Course
7 - 9 August 2018 University of Sheffield
This level 3 course provides instruction on the siting of strain gauges and the choice of gauge systems; covering strain measurement, correction of measured data, determination of stress and yield load, principal features of common load cells and refinement of the bridge circuit.
Certification of Strain Measurement Personnel
The BSSM also runs a certification scheme to promote good practice in strain measurement, and to confirm the competence of a strain gauge user by awarding a formal qualification. The scheme operates at three levels consistent with the European Standard EN473:2005, General Principles for Qualification and Certification of NDT Personnel. There are three levels of seminars. Candidates can also take separate exams.
