The curvometer is used to measure changes in the curvature of component surfaces. The deformometer measures distance changes on component surfaces on a base length of 0.5 or 1 m. The measurements can be used to calculate the acting normal force and moment stress on components when they change elastically. The measurements can be used to calculate the acting normal force and moment stress on components if they deform elastically and their stiffness EF and moment of inertia EI are known. The measuring range over the base length of 500 mm is 5 mm for both measuring systems and the measuring accuracy is +/-0.003 mm.
