Plate-impact experiments have been used to interrogate the influence of gauge alignment on the shock response of wire-element lateral manganin stress gauges in PMMA and aluminium targets. Embedded gauges were progressively rotated relative to the target impact face. Peak stress and lateral gauge rise-times were found be proportional (negatively and positively, respectively) to the resolved angle of the embedded gauge element. However, lateral stress gradients behind the shock were found to be relatively insensitive to gauge alignment. In addition, investigation of the effects of release arrival showed no connection to either peak stress or behaviour behind the shock.
