Load cell

  1. Oct 8, 2014 #1
    I'm trying to design a strain gauge load cell for force measurments. I have few questions regarding that.
    Q1: how to calculate the minimum froce that my load cell can detect?
    Q2: how to calculate the FSO(full scale output) of my load cell?
    Q3: Is there any way to measure the lateral forces in the load cell?

    Thanks for the post! Sorry you aren't generating responses at the moment. Do you have any further information, come to any new conclusions or is it possible to reword the post?

    Your question is too general to give a sensible answer. We need more information to give appropriate answers.
    How will you construct your strain gauge?
