The Application of Finite Element Methods to Study Force Transducer Anti-Deviated Load Characteristics
In this study, a finite element method was used to study force transducer anti-deviated load characteristics. Through the changes produced by different sizes of force transducer finite element models, modal analyses in linear static analyses of different biased loadings were applied to perform cross-validation. The results indicate that force transducers with same strain output but with high torsional stiffness have better anti-deviated load capacity. Increasing the torsional stiffness of the force transducer could reduce the loss of precision due to biased loading.
