ETME360 Spring 2014
three-element Rectangular strain gage rosette is mounted to
a titanium component, (Etitanium = 14.5 X 106
PSI, v = 0.3).
The following strains are measured under constant-temperature biaxial loading:
Gage A = 1000 X10-6, Gage B = -100 X10-6, Gage C = 2000 X10-6.
What three strains (axes a, b, and c - oriented as shown on the paper handout given 2/29/2012) would be indicated by a three-element Delta configuration rosette at the same location, assuming axis ”A” of the delta was identically aligned?
