**Mass Moment of Inertia, Torsional Stiffness, and Shaft Criticals
**

When a system is rotating at a constant velocity, or when at rest, its angular acceleration is zero, thus making the torque input equal to the torque output. However, most rotating systems require accurate measurement during the important power up and power down phases of the test, i.e. when acceleration is not zero. It is during these measurement phases of the test when the inertial effects of the rotating torque sensor must come under close scrutiny. Torque measurement in rotating machinery has always presented a unique set of problems for the test engineer. Ideally, the user will want a sensor that is infinitely stiff, infinitely small, and preferably of minimal cost. In reality, the user will probably be more concerned with specific performance specifications of the torque sensor, i.e. 1) mass moment of inertia, 2) torsional stiffness and 3) shaft criticals. Mass Moment of Inertia Inertia, as defined by Newton’s Laws of Motion, is a body's (mass) resistance to a change in momentum, whether in motion or at rest. The intrusion of a torque-sensing device into the testing driveline, therefore, adds an element of mass to the test system. This changes the dynamic characteristics of the drive system under test. In the static state, this intrusion is effectively nulled out by virtue of the relationship: For purpose of discussion, Mass Moment of Inertia (I) for rotating torque sensors is defined by the relationship:

I =

where,

m • r2

2

m = Mass of Rotating Component of the Sensor r = Radius of Rotating Component of the Sensor The reduction of radius (r) of the rotating member of the torque sensor is of greater significance than the reduction of mass (m) in minimizing the inertial component error. In some cases the I • α error can be eliminated altogether by use of a non-rotating reaction torque sensor, but again, other system dynamics must be considered such as frequency response. Torsional Stiffness Strain gage torque sensors deform linearly under load. This deformation, called strain (ε ), is important to the successful measurement of torque. In a dynamic rotating system, the stiffer the rotating member is, the more faithful the measurement of torque will be.
