Detectors, Strain

Definition : Detectors designed to sense the deformation produced in an object by an applied force (i.e., strain). These detectors determine the presence of strain and also if it is beyond some pre-established limit, but usually do not measure accurately the intensity of the strain. Strain detectors are based in the change of some characteristic of a physical property of a sensor due to the strain, such as variations in electric resistivity, conduction of ultrasonic waves, or polarization of light in translucent objects.
