Torsion dynamometers

  • Kh. N. Dement'ev


Pendulum dynamometers are preferably used in the best machines for testing materials with static loads.

The existing designs of torsion dynamometers have as yet no substantial advantages as compared with those of the pendulum type.

Further attempts in producing low-inertia torsion dynamometers for static machines should aim at providing torsion bars with large twist angles,of the order of 0.5–0.7 rad.

Torsion dynamometers in combination with inertialess indicators are preferable to those of the pendulum type for use in machines intended for high-speed loading and deformations.
