    Measuring deformations

    The stresses of a material can not be measured directly. They must be obtained from other measurable parameters, which is why analysts use strain measurements in conjunction with other properties of the material to calculate the stresses for a given load condition. There are methods of measuring deformations based on mechanical, optical, acoustic, pneumatic and electrical phenomena.
