Abstract:

This report covers the Development of Instrumentation Techniques for Strain and Temperature Measurements on aerospace test structures in a combined high temperature and acoustic noise environment. Techniques for attaching instrumentation to test panels for vibratory testing up to 1400 F were developed and evaluated at the AFFDL Sonic Fatigue Facility. Methods for measuring static strains for short periods up to one hour at 1200 F were also developed. Strain gages, temperature sensor lead wire selections and installation techniques are covered in the report.
