SKID TEST TRAILER CALIBRATION, PROJECT GUIDELINES

THE STUDY IS DESIGNED TO COMPARE TWO DIFFERENT SYSTEMS OF CALIBRATING THE STRAIN GAGES MOUNTED ON A 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 ARE DEVELOPED AND COMPARED. /AUTHOR/
