Abstract:

The Applied Mathematics Unit of the Laboratory started a study of geometrical and frictional parameters affecting accelerometer performance. The study will encompass round, annular and rectangular orifices. It will start with ideal conditions of unidirectional motion, no friction, no geometrical flow restriction, sharp edged orifices, constant density beads, constant size beads, and all spherical beads, and will be extended to determine the effect of non-ideality on theoretical bead flow rate. The effect of packing arrangement will also be studied. Author
