Wind tunnel tests on scale models of aero-space vehicles cover a wide range of static measurements, viz, pressure distribution, force and moments. Strain gauge balances are extensively used for the measurement of forces and moments. These balances contain constraints with bonded, resistance wire strain gauges, which connected in a bridge form gives output signal voltage proportional to the load encountered by this elements.13; 13;
