Abstract

Normal force measurement issues and the fragile nature of the 2K FRT are major problems with the current ARES Rheometer system. In an attempt to overcome these two issues a custom designed semiconductor strain gage based transducer was successfully installed in an ARES Rheometer. A comparison of the performance of a Rheometric Scientific series 2K FRT and the strain gage based transducer was performed. A comparison of sensitivity, accuracy and drift of data is shown for these two transducers.
