Abstract:

Special problems of design and protection required for strain-gage balances used in or near water are discussed, together with the solutions accomplished. Typical balance elements and assemblies are shown. A mathematical analysis of an initially balanced Wheatstone bridge circuit is given. The influence of the voltage source resistance and bridge output load resistance is included in the analysis. Other pertinent instrumentation considerations are presented. Author
