Abstract:

An experimental investigation was conducted of the performance characteristics of the Bell IIIB accelerometer and the characteristics were related to those of the mathematical model of the instrument. The investigation included an analysis of the instrument and derivation of its model, discussion of test instrumentation and instrument limitations, data collection and reduction techniques, and interpretation of the results of the experimental work. Data on the instrument taken prior to the Aerospace tests and supplied by Bell Aerosystems are included. Correspondence of the test data was reasonably good. Initially, however, changes in accelerometer coefficient values occurred during the test period. Criteria for improved instrumentation and procedures were developed. Author
