Strain gauges are used to measure very small changes in length of a structure (e.g. a steel prop or a concrete pile) during loading. These strains can be converted into load if the modulus of the material is known.

Surface mounted strain gauge with independent temperature measurement for monitoring loads in props.

Embedment strain gauge for use in a concrete pile.

Loads can be measured directly using load cells.
