Strain measurement of pressurized pipes during development requires special strain gauge installation technique to ensure reliability and accuracy of strain data.
Accuratio has extended experience and knowledge in strain gauge installation and strain measurement of composite material and pressurized pipes. We ensure that gauge installation has been performed correctly and the installation is secured using proper coating material and techniques.
These rosette strain gauges were installed to measure hoop and axial strains of pressurized composite pipe at 5,000 psi.
Strain gauge installations were protected using special coating to ensure reliability and accuracy of strain data of the pressurized pipe with water.
The outside diameter of the pipe was also instrumented to measure hoop and axial strain.
