Model deformation sensor
The Strain Gauge block represents a sensor that generates a change in resistance as a function of strain using the following equation:
ΔR/R is the fractional change in resistance.
is the strain at port E.
K is the Gauge factor parameter value.
The unstressed gauge resistance. The default value is
The ratio K of the fractional change in resistance
to the fractional change in length. The default value is
The block has the following ports:
Positive electrical port
Negative electrical port
