Main Article Content
Load cells used in many applications, especially those involving weight measurement, work through measurement of strain by a strain gauge attached to a load bearing beam. This article describes a design of a load bearing cantilever beam which has a constant high strain on the surface of its middle part. This will simplify the processes of attaching the strain gauge and of load cell calibration. The shape of the beam is determined by elementary beam theory to have the desired strain. A finite element program is used to calculate the real strain and stress. It is found that the middle part of the beam indeed has constant high surface strain close to the designed value.

The editorial board of Thai-Nichi Institute of Technology is pleased to receive articles from lecturers and experts in the fields of business administration, languages, engineering and technology written in Thai or English. The academic work submitted for publication must not be published in any other publication before and must not be under consideration of other journal submissions. Therefore, those interested in participating in the dissemination of work and knowledge can submit their article to the editorial board for further submission to the screening committee to consider publishing in the journal. The articles that can be published include solely research articles. Interested persons can prepare their articles by reviewing recommendations for article authors.
Copyright infringement is solely the responsibility of the author(s) of the article. Articles that have been published must be screened and reviewed for quality from qualified experts approved by the editorial board.
The text that appears within each article published in this research journal is a personal opinion of each author, nothing related to Thai-Nichi Institute of Technology, and other faculty members in the institution in any way. Responsibilities and accuracy for the content of each article are owned by each author. If there is any mistake, each author will be responsible for his/her own article(s).
The editorial board reserves the right not to bring any content, views or comments of articles in the Journal of Thai-Nichi Institute of Technology to publish before receiving permission from the authorized author(s) in writing.
