N Rogers: 448. Inertia Measurements of Aerospace Equipment. 1964.



Measured inertia data submittal of Aerospace equipment is needed for determining expected performance characteristics of a vehicle. Procuring agencies are beginning to request such information from equipment suppliers.
This paper recommends the torsional pendulum as one method for obtaining experimental inertia values and presents formula derivation, equipment calibration, and measurement procedures.
