strain-gage bridge

strain-gage bridge

[′strān ¦gāj ‚brij]
(engineering)
A bridge arrangement of four strain gages, cemented to a stressed part in such a way that two gages show increases in resistance and two show decreases when the part is stressed; the change in output voltage under stress is thus much higher than that for a single gage.
