Abstract
THE NON-CONTACTING TORQUE SENSOR WHICH WE PROPOSE TO BUILD WILL PROVIDE, FOR THE FIRST TIME, A LOW COST AND RELIABLE MEANS OF DETERMINING, IN REAL-TIME, TORQUE QPPLIED TO ANY FERROMAGNETIC SHAFT. FOR ARMY VEHICLES, THE TORQUE SENSOR WOULD FIND USES IN DIAGNOSTIC STUDIES, BY PROVIDING DIRECT, ACCURATE MEASUREMENTS OF TORQUE. WITH THE ADDITION OF A RATE SENSING DEVICE (NOT PART OF THIS PROPOSAL), HORSEPOWER CAN ALSO BE DETERMINED IN REAL-TIME. THE PROPOSED TECHNIQUE, WHICH IS PROPRIETARY TO NORDTECH RESEARCH, HAS NEVER BEEN USED IN A TORQUE SENSING MECHANISM BEFORE.
