Abstract

THIS REPORT DESCRIBES THE RESULTS OF THE EVALUATION OF SEVERAL FORCE REFERENCE BENCHES, USING A DYNAMOMETER CAPABLE OF MEASURING 4 COMPONENTS OF THE WRENCH FORCES: 3 FORCES AND 1 TORQUE. THE MAIN COMPONENT IS A COMPRESSIVE ONE WITH A MAXIMUM VALUE OF 300 KN. THE EVALUATED BENCHES ARE THE FOLLOWING: IMGC (100 KN), ONERA (250 KN), TNO (500 KN), NPL (500 KN), LNE (500 KN). THE FOLLOWING ARE PRESENTED IN SUCCESSION: THE EVALUATION MEANS USED, THEIR CALIBRATION, THE MEASURING PROCEDURES ON THE BENCHES, THE VALUES OBTAINED FOR THE COMPONENTS. THE CONCLUSIONS OF THE STUDY INDICATE A LOW LEVEL FOR THE SIDE FORCE OR THE INTERFERING TORSIONAL MOMENT GENERATED BY THE EVALUATED BENCHES, AND GOOD CONSISTENCY OF THE MAIN FORCES.
