HBM workshop explains fundamentals of strain gauge installation at Silverstone.

As part of its highly acclaimed HBM on Tour series of workshops and training courses, HBM - a market leader in the field of test and measurement - has announced the date for its latest 'Installation of Strain Gauges' training course, which takes place on 18th October 2016.

Taking place between 9am to 5pm this comprehensive one day training course will explain the fundamentals of strain gauge measurement, ranging from gauge selection, through to analysis and evaluation of acquired data.

Providing both practical and theoretical advice on the principles and application of classical and fiber optic strain gauges and how to correctly measure the strain, the course will also look at the different adhesives and covering agents which can be used in installation.

Located at the prestigious Silverstone Wing in Northants, which sits in the heart of Silverstone's world-famous Grand Prix circuit, this memorable venue combines the glamour and heritage of the home of British motor racing, with stunning designs. And what's more, participants are invited to join a free Silverstone Racetrack Tour at the end of the seminar!

Suitable for all users from all technical fields who would like to install and apply their own classical and optical strain gauges, no prior knowledge is required to participate although a basic knowledge of measurement technology would be useful.

Free to attend; with lunch and morning and afternoon refreshments included, spaces are available on a first come, first served basis. Please reserve your spot by booking at www.hbm.com/en/3157/webinars
