Pagination or Media Count:
The report provides a balanced up-to-date presentation of the state-of-the-art of both open and closed loop accelerometers used for aircraft flight test work, covering system and component analysis and basic hardware design. Both physical design problems and mathematical analysis are covered and special emphasis is put on those aspects likely to be relevant to aircraft flight test work. Performance details includes repeatability, compensation for temperature variation, insusceptibility to cross effects, stability under vibration and frequency response. The application of accelerometers in several flight test techniques together with their performance requirements are reviewed in order to guide the flight test engineer in making his choice of instrument in any particular case.
