CEL strain gauge technicians understand the importance of precise gauge placement and orientation. Great care is taken in surface preparation, gauge installation, and egress routing, to ensure successful test data under critical conditions. We apply a variety of gauge types including foil, free filament, semiconductor, and fiber optic, in many configurations and sizes.

Advantages of Temperature, Strain, and Pressure Sensors

  • Available in many different configurations
  • Sensors may be externally bonded to new or existing structures (e.g., steel members)
  • Sensors may be embedded in new construction (e.g., concrete and steel re-bar)
  • Measure movements down to the picometer range – Sensors provide continuous and valuable data on strain and tension in steel members (open or in concrete), temperature, curing, stability, wind loads, and effects of seismic activity or nearby excavations/erosion
  • The same sensors used during construction may be integrated and used as part of a permanent structural health monitoring system
  • Continuous monitoring facilitates predictive analysis of structural integrity and bridge health as a function of loads, age and/or later additional construction in surrounding area
