Applied pressure through fluid to measure strain

  1. Oct 3, 2014 #1

    I would like to ask if its possible to apply pressure through fluid on a curved soft tissue such as silicon to measure the strain by using sensors (and what kind) such as shows in the attached image?
    If those were pressure sensors would they all show the same pressure or would the change of pressure could create a picture of the strain.

    Additional details:
    Stage 1 is before applying pressure
    Stage 2 is after applying pressure
    The sensors take readings before and after stage 1 & 2

    Any more direction to research and read would be appreciated as well

    If I have understood your diagram correctly.. all the sensors would read the same pressure.
