This Dynamometer in our college workshops will be 72 years old this month, but due to Elfin Safety it has got to be decommisioned. If I have my way it wont be going for scrap even if I have to keep a 24 Hour vigil This file contains additional information such as Exif metadata which may have been added by the digital camera, scanner, or software program used to create or digitize it.

This is all fine and i understand it BUT! Today I have some free time and will be dismantling the covers to reveal what are going to be my constraints underneath the bulky dyno cover s? I will take a few pictures while I have the covers off. Maybe I'm setting myself a task that may not be achievable and will require more vast dyno modification than I am targeting to achieve, fingers crossed. This paragraph should of read in the very first post should of read as follows - wouldn't allow me to edit the first post. It will be interesting to see how your project goes!

This invention relates to improvements in hydraulic brakes and dynamometers of the type in which a vaned element mounted on a rotary shaft circulates water or other suitable liquid to and from a similar vaned element which is fixed in the casing of the apparatus. It is well known that when dynamometers of this type are employed for testing or other purposes involving the destruction of considerable amounts of power, the relative velocity between the water and the apparatus is sufficiently high to endanger the life of the working parts by erosion or by erosion-corrosion and it is the object of the present invention to reduce damage to the working parts by avoiding, as far as possible, the creation of harmful eddies in the vicinity of the vulnerable parts of the dynamometer. To attain this object according to the invention the parts of the dynamometer with which the working liquid comes into contact with a high velocity are so shaped that the liquid will flow over the surface thereof smoothly and without generating appreciable turbulence. The invention is illustrated in the accompanying drawings and will be described with relation thereto. In these drawings: Fig. The hydraulic dynamometer is of the usual type with a casing A to which is affixed the liners A' in which the non-rotating vaned elements A2 are formed and a rotating shaft B to which is affixed the rotor B1 carrying the rotary vaned elements B2.
