The concept of measuring deflection curvature of structures under bending loading with a device called a 'curvature gauge' is described. The application domain is specified in which this concept offers advantages over the alternative of measuring strain in terms of the measurement sensitivity, flexibility to choose the location for the sensor placement and immunity to the effects of microstructural interfacing between dissimilar materials that the sensor presence introduces. Details of the curvature gauge sensor are also given.
