Abstract
FOR ENGINE TESTING, AN ANGULAR ACCELERATION SENSING SYSTEM WILL BE ADAPTED TO BE DRIVEN BY THE CRANKSHAFT WITHOUT IMPACT ON THE DRIVELINELAYOUT. A CORRELATION WILL BE ESTABLISHED BETWEEN CRANKSHAFT ANGULAR ACCELERATIONS AND OVERALL ENGINE TORQUE OUTPUT. THE SENSING SYSTEM WILL BE UTILIZED TO MEASURE THE TORQUE CONTIBUTED BY EACH INDIVIDUAL CYLINDER IN A MULTI-CYLINDER ENGINE. THIS SYSTEM MAY ALSO BE USED TO MAKE ENGINE SPEED VS. TORQUE MEASUREMENTS WITHOUT A DYNAMOMETER BY UTILIZING THE INERTIAL LOAD OF THE ENGINE.
