Paper Abstract

A method for generating and measuring varying force by means of levitating a rigid object is discussed in this paper. The varying force is directly and accurately measured using an optical interferometer as the initial force acting on the inertial mass. The performance of the three-point bending tester based on the method is investigated by conducting several sets of three-point bending tests for aluminum bars. The future prospects of this method are discussed.
