SKID TEST TRAILER CALIBRATION PROJECT GUIDELINES

THIS STUDY IS DESIGNED TO COMPARE TWO DIFFERENT SYSTEMS OF CALIBRATING THE STRAIN GAGES MOUNTED ON SKID TRAILER TEST EQUIPMENT AXLE. ONE METHOD, THE LEVER ARM PROCEDURE, APPLIES A TORQUE DIRECTLY TO THE AXLE. THE OTHER METHOD APPLIES A TORQUE THROUGH THE TIRE BY MEANS OF A MOVEABLE PLATE ON WHICH THE TIRE RESTS. IT IS FELT THAT A DIFFERENCE COULD RESULT IN DIFFERING RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN TORQUE AND PLATE READINGS. THESE RELATIONSHIPS WILL BE DEVELOPED AND COMPARED. /AUTHOR/
