SAVTEK 9. Savunma Teknolojileri Kongresi, Ankara, Turkey, 27 - 29 June 2018
In this paper, design of a device, which can measure mass properties of missiles or their sub-components in
a single test setup, is expressed. An object, whose mass properties are going to be calculated, is attached to
the device and three-dimensional, oscillatory motion about a specific point is supplied to that object. During
this motion, velocity and acceleration values of the object are measured simultenously with the force and
torque values at the connection point of the object. Mass properties of the object are computed by using
measured velocity, acceleration, force and torque values in Newton’s equations of motion.
