Abstract:The results of creep tests (for compressive and tensile forces) for the HBM Z4A force transducer made in a Force Standard Machine (FSM) working in the range from 1 kN to 55 kN in the Central Office of Measures are described. Studies have shown that the largest indications of the force transducer (given in electrical units, mV/V) in the first seconds of testing are most likely due to the mechanical properties of the materials from which the transducer is built. Higher values of relative hysteresis error and relative measurement uncertainty were observed for the compressive forces.
