The modern method of measuring steady and alternating stresses as applied to aircraft structures, is of great potential interest to railway engineers as a convenient and very accurate means of investigating the failure of rolling stock and all moving parts, loads on rails, crossovers, and so forth. The method described makes use of the wire-wound resistance gauge, which depends for its action on the fact that a stress applied to the gauge causes a small change in its resistance.
