This article considers how strain gauges and load gauges are being used as sensors (hardware) in conjunction with feature extraction algorithms (software) in structural health monitoring and damage prognosis applications. A concise review of mature strain gauge and load gauge technologies is presented, followed by a discussion on how the community has implemented data mining with these specific types of sensor arrays to make a system assessment of some kind. Examples from current SHM literature are provided for illustration where appropriate.
