The reinforcement effect of electrical resistance strain gauges is well-described in the literature, especially for strain gaugesinstalled on surface. This paper considers the local reinforcement effect of strain gauges embedded within low Young modulus materials. Inparticular, by using a simple theoretical model, already used for strain gauges installed on the surface, it proposes a simple formula that allowsthe user to evaluate the local reinforcement effect of a generic strain gauge embedded on plastics, polymer composites, etc. The theoreticalanalysis has been integrated by numerical and experimental analyses, which confirmed the reliability of the proposed model.
