The definition of word "gauge":
rate 1. standard of measure; device for measuring (pressure, amount, distance, etc.); standard by which something is judged, criterion; extent
rate 2. measure; evaluate, determine; estimate
rate 3. In manufacturing and engineering, a device used to determine whether a dimension is larger or smaller than a reference standard. A snap gauge, for example, is formed like the letter C, with outer "go" and inner "not go" jaws and is used to check diameters, lengths and thicknesses. Screw-thread pitch gauges have triangular serrations spaced to correspond with various pitches, or numbers of threads per inch or per centimeter. Deviation-type or dial gauges indicate the amount by which an object deviates from the standard.
rate 4. dial gauge
rate 5. pressure gauge
rate 6. strain gauge;
rate 7. also spelled Gage, in manufacturing and engineering, a device used to determine, either directly or indirectly, whether a dimension is larger or smaller than another dimension that is used as a reference standard. Some devices termed gauges may actually measure the size of the object to be gauged, but most gauges merely indicate whether the dimensions of the test object are sufficiently close to those of the standard; i.e., whether they are in the range between set limits, known as the tolerance, for a particular object. Gauges may operate mechanically or electrically. Gauges are usually regarded as either fixed-type or deviation-type instruments. Fixed-type gauges are used to indicate whether a given dimension is larger or smaller than the standard. They may be of hard steel, soft steel or glass. Sometimes chrome plating or tungsten-carbide coatings are used to prevent wear. Plug, ring, snap and limit gauges are fixed gauges usually made to satisfy special requirements. To check the accuracy of a hole, a cylindrical bar (plug gauge) with highly finished ends of different diameters is used. If the hole size is correct within tolerable limits, the small end (marked go) will enter the hole, while the large end (not go) will not. Ring gauges for checking the dimensions of cylindrical parts also utilize the tolerance principle, with go and not go sections. A snap gauge is formed like the letter C, with outer go and inner not go jaws and is used to check diameters, lengths and thicknesses. Flush-pin gauges have one moving part and are used to gauge the depth of shoulders or holes. Form gauges are used to check the profile of objects; two of the most common types are radius gauges, which are packs of blades with both concave and convex circular profiles that are used to check the radii of grooves and corners and screw-thread pitch gauges, which are blades with triangular serrations spaced to correspond with various pitches or numbers of threads per inch or per centimetre. Gauge blocks, also known as Johannsson blocks, after their inventor, came into significant industrial use during World War I. They are small steel blocks, usually rectangular, with two exceptionally flat surfaces parallel to each other and a specified distance apart. They are sold as sets of blocks that can be wrung together in increments of ten-thousandths of an inch to gauge almost any linear dimension. Angle-gauge blocks can be put together to measure angles. Deviation-type gauges indicate the amount by which the object being gauged deviates from the standard. This deviation is usually shown in units of measurement, but some gauges show only whether the deviation is within a certain range. They include dial indicators, in which movement of a gauging spindle deflects a pointer on a graduated dial; wiggler indicators, which are used by machinists to centre or align work in machine tools; comparators or visual gauges and air gauges, which are used to gauge holes of various types. Very precise measurements may also be obtained by the use of light-wave interference, but the instruments that do so are referred to as interferometers.; also called Railway Gauge, in railroad transportation, the width between the inside faces of running rails. Because the cost of construction and operation of a rail line is greater or less depending on the gauge, much controversy has surrounded decisions in respect to it and a proliferation of gauges has developed throughout the world. A narrow gauge has, in addition to cost advantages, a capability for sharper curvature; among its disadvantages are reduced lateral stability and consequent loss of operating speed. About three-fifths of the rail trackage in the world is the so-called standard gauge of 4 feet 8.5 inches (1.4 m), which originated with George Stephenson's pioneer Liverpool & Manchester line in 1829. It was exported from Britain to Europe and the United States with the export of British locomotives built to it. Among notable deviations are Russia's 5-foot (1.5-metre) gauge, Spain's 5-foot 6-inch (1.7-metre) gauge and Japan's 3-foot 6-inch (1.1-metre) gauge. Several countries operate railroads on two different gauges; Pakistan operates on three and Australia and India use four. a measure of the bore of a shotgun.
rate 8. US also gage (v) to calculate (an amount), esp. by using a measuring device, or (figurative) to make a judgment about (people's feelings) Use a thermometer to gauge the temperature. I tried to gauge (= guess) the weight of the box. It's difficult to gauge how they'll react. (+ wh- word) (figurative) A poll was conducted to gauge consumers' attitudes.
rate 9. An instrument that registers the quantity of a substance, e.g., fuel gauge, ammeter, voltmeter, temperature gauge, oil gauge, oil pressure gauge, vacuum gauge.
rate 10. A tool for measuring clearances, pressures, sizes, etc.B&ampS gauge, compression gauge, dial gauge, and feeler gauge,
rate 11. petroleum industry to measure the quantity of oil in a tank.
rate 12. petroleum industry to use a bit gauge to check the size of the bit.
rate 13. An instrument for measuring
