Test Cell Thrust Measurement
|Publication Date:||1 June 2011|
Thrust measurement systems come in many sizes and shapes, with varying degrees of complexity, accuracy and cost. For the purposes of this information report, the discussions of thrust measurement will be limited to axial thrust in singleaxis test systems.
There are several purposes served by this information report:
a. To provide guidelines for the specification of thrust measurement systems.
b. To address the major factors which can influence thrust measurement uncertainty.
c. To consider the operational characteristics and the effects on system performance.
