Thrust – and Torquemeasurement (EVOthrust®)
The Determination of the Propeller Thrust is until now an indicator which is rare found in the practice application .
Different than the torque and power measurement on propulsion systems, which is often already used when it comes to the assessment of ship systems and its optimal operation.
The metrological difficulties to be considered in the thrust measurement are the very small measuring range, torsion and temperature effects, as well as the influence of the shaft bending. These influences are to be considered in the evaluation of the measured data and corrected in advance, during the measurement.
Here we have developed a system that master these difficulties.
