Cantilever beam Strain measurement

Objective
Cantilever beams used In different Machines & Structures
subjected to different types of loads.
The component which is safe under static loading may fail
during dynamic loading. So dynamic analysis is necessary to
obtain safe model of component
This project deals with strain measurement using 2 strain
gauges and Wheatstone bridge network. Output of this circuit
will be given to National Instrument Data Acquisition System
(DAQ) hardware along with LabVIEW software for further
processing the results .

Cantilever beam Strain measurement

Problem definition
The static model fails under certain circumstances .These
results can not extend or extrapolate to the same for dynamic
loading. So the problem of strain measurement of a
cantilever beam can be solved by three methods

Analytic solution
Simulation (using a software) of the same for static
Analysis.
Modal Analysis of cantilever beam(Using Software)
Experimental analysis for strain measurement.

Present project work


Analytic solution
Theoretical Calculations
Uniform rectangular cross-sectional beam of of stainless steel of linear elastic
isotropic homogeneous material.
Subjected to a vertical point load at the tip of its free end
Using the Bernoulli-Eulers elastic curve equation the following relationship is
obtained
2
EI (d y)=M
dx 2

The B.M equation at section X-X at a distance x from fixed end is given by:
2
EI ( d y2 )= = -F(L-x)
dx

Upon integrating y = FL 3/3EI

Cantilever beam Strain measurement

Future plan of project


Finding analytic solution for different material and different
cross section
Verifying analytic results through simulation
Fabrication of Experimental Setup of given dimensions and
material
Carrying experimental analysis on that setup
Preparing lab manual for the use of experimental setup
