Title (EN) DEVICE FOR MEASURING THE AMPLITUDE OF A FORCE PRODUCED ON AN AXIS AND A VEHICLE PROVIDED WITH SAID DEVICE
(FR) DISPOSITIF PERMETTANT DE MESURER L'AMPLITUDE D'UNE FORCE APPLIQUÉE SUR UNE PIECE, ET VÉHICULE MUNI DE CE DISPOSITIF
Abstract: front page image
(EN)The inventive device for measuring forces, in particular radial forces produced on an axis or another piece, for example on the axis of the rear wheel of a motorcycle. Said device comprises a measuring sleeve (1) arranged around an axis (3) in such a way that a force to be measured is produced thereon by means of said sleeve. Said device also comprises a strain gauge (40) which makes it possible to determine the deformation amplitude of the part of the measuring sleeve in order to deduct the amplitude of the produced force. The invention can be used for measuring the tensile stress of a motorcycle chain.
(FR)Dispositif permettant de mesurer les forces, notamment les forces radiales, appliquées contre un axe ou une autre pièce, par exemple contre l'essieu d'une roue arrière de mot. Il comprend une douille de mesure (1) disposée autour de l'axe (3) en sorte que la force à mesurer est appliquée sur l'axe par l'intermédiaire de la douille de mesure. Le dispositif comprend une jauge de contrainte (40) permettant de déterminer l'amplitude de la déformation d'une portion de la douille de mesure afin d'en déduire l'amplitude de la force appliquée. Application: mesure de la force de traction exercée par la chaîne sur une moto.
