  • Development of methods for dynamic force calibration Part 1 Dynamic calibration of force transducers based on the determination of inertia forces with interferometric calibrated acceleration transducers


A dynamic calibration and testing facility for forces up to 1.5 kN was built to investigate the dynamic properties of force transducers. The dynamic calibration procedure is based on the generation of inertia forces. For the calculation of inertia forces according to Newton's law, the acting mass and the corresponding acceleration is measured. Force transducers of similar static calibration results can show considerable differences in the dynamic case, so that a static calibration of force transducers is not sufficient for dynamic applications. The reproducibility of the dynamic calibration can be increased by performing a series of measurements in different angular installation positions. Since this procedure is very time consuming, the acceleration can be measured simultaneously at different angular positions.
