Abstract:

The effects of asymmetry of design, manufacturing tolerances, and assembly tolerances on the dynamics of a single-degree-of-freedom, rate- integrating gyro are analyzed. The effects of many error sources and the effects of commonly accepted but frequently erroneous assumptions on the determination of the performance coefficients are reviewed and analyzed. Statistical analysis procedures for data reduction are not included since they are well covered in the literature. A brief investigation of convection torques due to density gradients in the flotation fluid is included. Though usually ignored, these convection torques may be very significant in some applications.
