Calle, Jean-Michel (1965) Design of a tension load cell. Engineer's thesis, California Institute of Technology. http://resolver.caltech.edu/CaltechETD:etd-09102002-145241
A tension load cell is designed along the two following main ideas:
- Decrease the pressure by which the applied load is measured.
- Design a thinner and therefore more flexible diaphragm.
After calculation of the stresses produced in the diaphragm, a thinner but still strong diaphragm is designed as well as the equipment necessary to build it.
The shape and dimensions of the diaphragm being determined, the tension load cell is then designed.
Working drawings of the parts of the mold and the tension load cell are given at the end of the work, in the appendix.
