Force Measurement Arrangement
Non-Confidential description of the invention
The present invention in general relates to measurement of forces, more particularly to anarrangement for measurement of forces in all three axes. It provides a novel method to measure the forces developed due to an internal flow or a jet. The novelty as well as the usefulness lies in the fact that the measurement can be made with minimal changes in a setup, in terms of space occupied. This is achieved by mounting the sensors in a specific arrangement, on a flow carrying element which can replace part of the pre-existing duct or conduit. Such measurements of forces is routinely carried out in jet engine and rocket motor nozzle characterization studies.
