Investigations for the model-based dynamic calibration of force transducers by using shock excitation
AbstractWithin the scope of the joint research project EMRP IND09 "Traceable dynamic measurements of mechanical quantities", numerous measurements were performed at PTB's 20 kN primary shock force calibration device to investigate and validate the approach of a model-based dynamic calibration of force transducers by using shock excitations. The tests included several strain gauge force transducers of greatly differing structural design, size, weight and mechanical coupling. By looking at a few examples, investigated physical models of the measurement set-up and developed data analysis procedures for parameter identification based on measured shock data are presented and discussed. The models reproduce the dynamic response including the observed modal oscillations of various origins that limit the usable measurement bandwidth. Moreover, these modal oscillations may have an important role for the parameter identification process, which is further discussed. This paper is an extended version of the original contribution to the IMEKO 2014 conference in Cape Town, South Africa.
