A recently invented acceleration strain transducer is based on the principle of a conventional spring-and-mass acceleration transducer combined with a linear strain sensor that measures the acceleration-induced deflection of the spring. The invention is compatible with any of a variety of linear strain sensors, including conventional foil resistance strain gauges, fiber-optic and fiber-laser strain sensors, and electrically-conductive-liquid strain sensors.
