Design of an inertia measurement device for stores

Kılıç, Berkay
In this thesis, design of a device, which can measure mass properties of missiles or their sub-components in a single test setup, is expressed. An object, whose mass properties are going to be calculated, is attached to the device and three-dimensional, oscillatory motion about a specific point is supplied to that object. During this motion, velocity and acceleration values of the object are measured simultaneously with the force and torque values at the connection point. Mass properties of the object are computed by using measured velocity, acceleration, force and torque values in Newton’s equations of motion.
