A digital instrumentation package for an improved torsion pendulum.
MISSING 1983; :1-9
This report describes the design and operation of a digital instrumentation package for the Bureau of Mines improved torsion pendulum, a scientific instrument that measures the vibration damping of metallic materials. The new design eliminates manual analog-to-digital conversion, reduces the data acquisition time, and increases the precision of the measurements. The digital output can be coupled directly to a microprocessor or computer to produce the final data in real time.
