SHAFT ALIGNMENT METHODS WITH STRAIN GAGES AND LOAD CELLS
Methods of aligning propulsion shafting using load cells for direct bearing reaction measurement and procedures for shafting alignment by measurement of shaft bending moments with strain gages are presented. Additionally a unique means of measuring reduction gear and stern tube bearing reactions is described.
