Abstract:The present study focuses on printing strain sensors directly
on tensile test specimens using inkjet printing technology.
This type of strain gauges has the advantage over
conventional strain gauges that no glue or carrying platelet
is present between the sensor and the surface that should be
measured. Therefore, strains in thin foils can possibly be
measured with printed strain gauges. First, proof of principle
is given in this paper by successfully printing strain gauges
on FR4. The printed strain gauges prove to behave linearly
up to strains of 0.2% and can measure the strains within
3.5% accuracy.
