The Strain Gauge block represents a sensor that
generates a change in resistance as a function of strain using the
the fractional change in resistance.
is the strain
at port B.
K is the Gauge factor parameter
Dialog Box and Parameters
- Gauge resistance
The unstressed gauge resistance. The default value is 100 Ω.
- Gauge factor
The ratio K of the fractional change in resistance
to the fractional change in length. The default value is 2.
The block has the following ports:
Positive electrical port
Negative electrical port
