  • Strain Tensor Gage -- Application Survey


    I would appreciate an indication whether members of the list see potential
    applications for a gage that measures the complete strain tensor as a
    function of time. This gage measures strain inside a solid, yielding the
    strain ellipsoid, octahedral shear, principle strains (magnitude and
    orientation), and shear strain on any plane.

    I am a geophysicist, and have used this instrumentation in dynamic
    analysis of explosive impact on rock. However, I have been subscribing to
    this list for several years, feeling that there are potential applications
    in biomechanics, but have not inquired until now from the community
    whether those feelings are justified.

    I have a few thoughts as to potential uses, such as measurement of
    compressive and shear strain in shoe insoles, dynamic response of
    protective equipment, etc., but would rather hear what you think.

    Any feedback is much appreciated, and potential collaborations would be

    Regards, and thanks in advance.
