Abstract:

A simple, mathematically correct procedure for reducing accelerometer data obtained on a precision centrifuge is presented. The procedure provides a means of optimally separating even and odd terms and is applicable to the determination of all the nonlinear coefficients of the assumed model equation. The effect of the radial acceleration gradient and of rotation are investigated. Criteria for establishing the statistical significance of the coefficients and the validity of the model equation are also presented.
