Founded in 1956, the WRSGC brings together strain gage experts throughout the US to explore development and applications of strain gages, strain gage based transducers and associated instrumentation. The group meets twice a year, holding one virtual meeting in the spring and an in-person meeting in the fall. During the 2-day in-person meeting, formal presentations are given where the latest experiences of members are exchanged and attendees’ problems are discussed and often solved. Tours of test facilities in the host city are included. The meetings are in a round table format to encourage dialog between attendees.
The WRSGC is looking for active participants in industry who want to learn more about strain gages and their applications and who have time and support from their company management to contribute to the success of the group.
