Abstract:

The object of the invention is a dynamometer for measuring the hydrodynamic forces lift and ram pressure acting on a body with a fluid flowing around it, containing a trough with a support block on which inductive transducers of lift and ram pressure are mounted with their armatures connected with springs and a measuring device that is connected with ac bridges through switches. In order to determine the components of the forces of the hydrodynamic effect of a flow of fluids on bodies submerged in them, the elastic elements in the form of leaf springs are connected with the studied object the body through rods for the component of lift and ram pressure set at an angle of 90 degrees to each other.
