Title: Load Cell Project To Be Applied To Suspension Vehicles

Abstract: This research presents a load cell project applied to vehicle suspension, which is an integral part of an Automatic Weighing Device (AWD). The project of the load cell was conceived based on the bending theory of circular plates, symmetrically loaded in relation to the center. Consequently maximum tension force, in the center of the plate, and its main directions were obtained. These equations were used to calculate the geometry of the load cell. An initial project of the load cell was carried out without the effect of the spherical dent from the area where the force was applied. This was done using theoretical concepts and comparing the results with those obtained by ANSYS program. The final project includes the effect of the spherical dent. The differences between the results of the experimental analysis and the numerical modeling confirm the correct choice of load cell geometry. Finally, a study of the load cell, working with applied force with small deviations with regards the nominal direction, was carried out. This is the closest possibility to reality one can see applied to vehicles. Copyright © 2000 Society of Automotive Engineers, Inc.
