The Optimized Design of Strains Transducer Elastic Component with Double Cantilever Beam


Article Preview

Abstract: The article presents the optimized design of the strains transducer elastic component with double cantilever beam. The calculation has been made by the methods of differential equations in the mechanics of material and the finite element methods.We get the maximum strain range and the best gauge position of the strains transducer. The results by the finite element methods are in accordance with the one that calculated by the differential equations. The output sensitivity of the transducer has been analysed. The load electrical capacity output of the material testing machine has been calculated.
