Centrifugal Testing Laboratory
The centrifuge at the New Jersey Institute of Technology is a 5-g ton machine. It is equipped with 16 slip rings and two hydraulic glands. It can reach a maximum speed of 450 rpm. The radius of the centrifuge is 0.65m. The arms of the centrifuge are connected to swing up buckets of internal dimensions 32.0cm*25.4cm*20.3cm.A video camera and a preamplifier were mounted inside the centrifuge. A 16- bit high-speed data acquisition card in a PC was used to acquire the data from the centrifuge.
