Calculate the Error and Eliminate It Mathematically

On the off chance that you know the genuine distinction in coefficients of warm extension between the strain gage and the part being tried, it's hypothetically conceivable to numerically kill the error brought about by changes in temperature. Obviously, to do this, you likewise need to gauge the temperature precisely at the strain gage establishment. The strain gage development coefficients, in any case, are not for the most part accessible from the maker as they tend to change from clump to group. Despite the fact that conceivable, making up for temperature impacts utilizing just this "ascertained" strategy is at times done. More typical, yet at the same time not exceptionally normal, a pseudo-figured technique is performed. As opposed to utilizing a pre-or anticipated coefficient to ascertain the differential strain prompted by temperature transforms, it is conceivable to decide the capacity tentatively. The word capacity is utilized purposefully, as the real strain versus temperature bend is rarely straight, particularly over huge temperature changes. Notwithstanding, if the application permits the system's strain versus temperature bend to be resolved tentatively, it turns out to be genuinely clear to evacuate the error numerically. 

Match the Strain Gauge to the Part Tested 

The utilization of various compounds/metals permits makers to give strain gages intended to coordinate the warm extension/withdrawal conduct of a wide assortment of materials generally subject to strain (and stress) testing. This sort of gage is alluded to as a "Self Temperature Compensated" (or STC) strain gage. These STC gauges are accessible from an assortment of producers and are determined for use in a wide variety of part materials. As you may envision, the more typical a metal, the better the odds are there is an STC gauge that matches. Notwithstanding, you may depend on having the capacity to locate a decent match for such materials as aluminum, metal, cast press, copper, carbon steel, stainless steel, titanium and some more. In spite of the fact that the match between the STC gauge and the part under test may not be flawless, it will regularly be sufficiently precise from solidifying to well past the breaking point of water. For more subtle elements on the exact precision to expect, you ought to contact your strain gage producer. 

Use an Identical Strain Gauge in Another Leg of the Bridge 

Due to the ratiometric way of the Wheatstone connect, a moment, unstrained gage (regularly alluded to as a "sham" gauge) set in another leg of the scaffold will make up for temperature prompted strain. Take note of that the fake gauge ought to be indistinguishable to the "measuring" gauge and ought to be liable to a similar domain. 
Strain gages have a tendency to be little, and have short warm time constants (i.e., their temperature changes rapidly in light of a temperature change around them), while the part under test may have generous warm mass and may change temperature gradually. Consequently, it is great practice to mount the fake gauge adjoining gage being measured. Be that as it may, it ought to be appended in such a route as not to be subjected to the initiated strain of the tried part. At times, with moderately thin subjects and when measuring twisting strain (instead of immaculate malleable or compressive strain), it might be conceivable to mount the spurious gage on the inverse side of a bar or pillar. For this situation, the temperature effect of the gauges is disposed of and the scale component of the yield is effectively multiplied.
