The strain tensor, principal strains and precision of the estimates of these values are derived for a range of different layouts of three-dimensional strain rosettes. These values are based on the Monte Carlo technique applied to experimental work which was carried out on transducers tested in different laboratories. The estimates of precision are determined theoretically and compared with results based on experimental findings. A new design of a miniature tri-rectangular tetrahedral rosette was manufactured and tested. Results suggest that this transducer does not perform as well as the rectangular patterns.
