Free PDF Download – Optimizing 3-Component Force Sensor Installation for Satellite Force Limited Vibration Testing
Presented by PCB Piezotronics -Payloads are often fitted with piezoelectric force sensors using flight hardware or adaptor rings that present the problem of proper installation and preload required for a successful test. Preloading selection criteria is reviewed in detail along with its effects on gage sensitivity caused by bolt material effects. Case studies are presented showing 3-component piezoelectric force gages at each mounting point using flight hardware and factory supplied preload studs.
