Krak Gage
Fracture test specimen instrumented with a crack gauge

Crack Gauges are constantan foil patterns bonded to prepreg base.

This gauge is bonded to a material specimen in the region of crack propogation.

As the speciment crack propogates, an equal crack forms in the foil.

The resulting change in path resistance has a direct linear, calibarted, and continuous relationship to the crack path.

The gauge change in resistance is measured and converted into a voltage proportional to the crack length.

The crack Voltage can be scaled so that the display is directly in mm of crack length

Gauges are available in lengths from 5 mm to 200 mm.

Multiple gauges can be placed at various parts of the specimen.

Instrumentation and Gauges are ordered from Hartrun Corpotation
