Abstract:

A thrust-torsion meter designed to measure the thrust and torque in a rotating shaft was dynamically tested to determine speed effects and interactions between the thrust and torque units of the meter. Information obtained from this test is to be used to determine the calibrating procedure for this and similar meters. The results of the tests show that if tare or no-load dynamometer readings can be obtained at the various test speeds, then the use of a static calibration of this instrument will give accurate results in dynamic tests.
