MPMD (MOBILE PARAMETRIC MEASUREMENT DEVICE) USERS MANUAL. FINAL REPORT ON TASK 6 OF CONTRACT DOT-FH-11-9158

The objective of the project was to analyze the Mobile Parametric Measurement Device (MPMD) and correct any deficiencies found. The analysis uncovered such a large number of deficiencies that the scope of the project was narrowed to only trying to correct the center of gravity and mass moment of inertia measurement procedures. The device was modified, calibrated and validated in accordance with this limited scope. The resulting device is much better in most areas of measurement, however, several future improvements are suggested. This document is the User's Manual for the MPMD as it functioned at the completion of the work described above. It details the set up and operation of the modified MPMD.
