S3F Point Sensor

S3F Point Sensor

The S3F point sensor utilizes ISSI’s patented Surface Stress Sensitive Film (S3F) layer, polymerized over a displacement sensor.  The point sensor is fully submersible and can be integrated into water/wind tunnel models, shoes, seats, tires and various other testing platforms for local measurements of shear stress.  The casting process makes the sensor customizable to match model geometry.  

A displacement sensor is embedded within the S3F layer. The sensor is displaced laterally during contact, primarily by shear forces. Cross-correlation analysis quantifies the displacements produced by shear.  Normal displacements are also detected by the sensor.  The mathematical ratio of loaded and unloaded images quantifies the vertical displacement of the film.
