Strain Measurement - Lesson 2

How do we quantify the deformation of an object? Is the definition of strain unique?


The strain is an important measure that quantifies the amount of deformation in the body, but depending on the feasibility of measurements and interpretation of measured data there are different measures of strains.

In this lesson, we will explore different definitions of strain measurements and also understand their physical meaning.
