A Linear Short-Lever Extensometer



Development of a compact, versatile yet accurate extensometer is described. The extensometer has a lever mechanism with added linkage to maintain the transducer alignment exactly parallel to the gage length. The design features linear translation through a large working range, variable initial gage length, and good access to small tensile specimens with minimum interference in plastic behavior.
