Abstract:

A device which would measure and record the position of the projection of the center of gravity in the horizontal plane is proposed. A generalized design of such a device is presented. The proposed system uses strain gage rings as sensing elements and either an analog computer or an analog to digital converter as a recording element. An additional device which would allow the calculation of centers of gravity from a series of three static measurements is also presented. Author
