Measurements for Stresses in Machine Components focuses on the state of stress and strain of components and members, which determines the service life and strength of machines and structures. This book is divided into four chapters. Chapter I describes the physical basis of several methods of measuring strains, which includes strain gauges, photoelasticity, X-ray diffraction, brittle coatings, and dividing grids. The basic concepts of the electric strain gauge method for measuring stresses inside machine components are covered in Chapter II. Chapter III elaborates on the results of experimental work on stresses and strains in linear, plane, and three-dimensional states of stress under static load conditions. The last chapter is devoted to examples for experimental stress analysis of plane and three-dimensional states of stresses under dynamic loads. Conclusions drawn from the theoretical and experimental investigations discussed in this text are provided at the end. This publication is intended for engineers and technicians, but is also a good reference for students researching on the stress or strains of machine components.
