Instrumented Rock Bolts

A vibrating wire strain gauge is inserted into a short length of standard threaded rockbolt or rebar which can be connected to a longer length of the same material for installation in the normal manner, ensuring the strain gauge remains within the loaded part of the rockbolt. The gauge is read by a portable probe, connected to a strain gauge.
