Influence of X-Radiation on Behavior of Strain Gages



In this paper the performance of resistance strain gages in a radiation environment is examined. Values of apparent strain are measured by strain gages mounted on two kinds of backing materials (polyester and polyimide) as a function of X-ray flux. A comparison of the behavior of both types of strain gages is presented and discussed.
