Measurement of Displacement and Deflection

Bolts prepared ready for gaugingWhen structures and components are subjected to strain or stress by factors such as loading or changes in temperature they will deflect or be displaced to some extent.

It is often imperative to measure these changes to ensure that they are remaining within design limits, so that structure and component life can be predicted and failure of a component or structure avoided.

Sensor Solutions have developed and installed measurement systems for a number of applications in the Aerospace industry, for instance installing displacement DC transducers and running tests on aircraft galleys.
