Unique Strain Gage that is Optimized for Composite Compression Testing

Bob Watson describes a new strain gage addition to the legendary Micro-Measurements CEA-Series.  These patterns have grid designs and side-terminals that make them ideal for composites compression and tension testing.  The wires are routed to the side to allow convenient mounting in the test fixture.
