A LINEAR ACCELERATION PICKUP,
FOREIGN TECHNOLOGY DIV WRIGHT-PATTERSON AFB OHIO
Pagination or Media Count:
This Author Certificate introduces a linear-acceleration pickup which has a spring-loaded inertial mass, a damping block, bellows, working fluid, and a potentiometer slip ring. The damping block is composed of inertial mass with rigidly mounted bimetallic clamps interacting with the section clamps, which with the frame form a variable circular slot. This design provides a constant damping coefficient automatically in spite of temperature changes in the surrounding media.
