    Hi everyone..
    I'm going to use strain gauge for my application.I'm going to place the gauge in a cantilever beam..one on each side of the beam..what r the considerations I need to take while designing cantilever beam?I'll apply force on this beam which will be sensed by the strain gauge..I'm using bonded metal-foil strain gauge..

    Regards,
    Arivu

    If you are using a single strain gauge in each location you need to be really careful aligning their axis with the beam axis.
    The minimum is two gauges to get the resolution in two directions on the beam surface.
    Normal practice is to use three however to provide a check by redundant information.
