ELECTRO-MECHANICAL SIX COMPONENT WIND TUNNEL WEIGHING MACHINE

ELEKTROMECHANISCHE SECHS KOMPONENTEN-WINDKANALWAAGE

The equipment described incorporates several measurement areas, so that lifting, air resistance and lateral forces up to 15000 n can be measured to an accuracy of plus or minus 0.05% of the actual final value. The wind tunnel weighing machine was constructed in the course of the modernisation of the large wind tunnel at the Daimler-Benz AG Plant in Stuttgart. Following a general description, the mechanical construction details of the apparatus are described (individual platforms for uplift measurement and main platforms for the measurement of the horizontal forces). Also reported are the measurement technology construction features. Finally, the test equipment is schematically illustrated and described. (TRRL)
