The Able Corporation Series D, six-component internal strain gage balance is basically a floating- frame type. The primary frames consist of an inner rod, which fastens to the model support sting. The Task Corporation Series D, six component internal strain gage balance is basically a floating-frame type. The primary frames consist of an inner rod, which fastens to the model support sting, and a cylindrical outer case, which is inserted into and attaches to the model. ONERA, the French Aerospace Research Institute, currently design, manufacture and calibrate the many dynamometers and balances, measuring one or several components, necessary for the tests in the large wind tunnels and other installations of its Modane-Avrieux and Le Fauga-Mauzac Centers, as well as those requested by external organizations, in France or abroad. The number of Cited by: Strain Gage Wind Tunnel Balances Modern Machine & Tool Co., Inc. is a designer and manufacturer of Multicomponent Wind Tunnel Balances for the aerospace industry. Our one-piece compound balances offer significant advantages in accuracy, reliability, and cost over multi-piece balances.
A Strain gauge is a sensor whose resistance varies with applied force; It converts force, pressure, tension, weight, etc., into a change in electrical resistance which can then be measured. When external forces are applied to a stationary object, stress and strain are the result. Stress is defined as the object's internal resisting forces, and. How to build a force balance to measure drag force and lift? Aerodynamic force and moment balance design fabrication a. Design of a six component internal strain gage balance system. Two-Point Calibration of Strain Gage & Load Cell. Two-point Strain Gage & Load Cell calibration involves establishing a zero point via the Balance command as described above. And then establishing a second point by applying a large stimuli and measuring the response in the Quick Setup dialog box. The strain gauge has become an essential tool in stress analysis, part optimization, safety testing and technical investigative work. It is also a major component used in the manufacturing of measurement transducers.

Six-component strain gauge balance. The balance measuring sections and arrangement of the strain gauges are shown in Fig. 9. Measurement of the normal force and pitching moment, as well as side force and yawing moment are obtained using the forward and backward measuring sections shaped as a Cited by: 6. six-component internal strain gage balance with belt suspension. Special Features used to Develop the Technology The computing system based of the finite-element method and the CAD designers were created to calculate and analyze the stress-strain state of balance at design stage.
