Abstract : The invention described is a wind-tunnel balance consisting of a cantilever, a holder for the model, an elastic measuring brace, and string pickups with electromagnetic converters of vibrations, which is distinguished by the fact that for the purpose of improving the static sensitivity and determining the dynamic conponents of the load in the body of the balance on hinged suspension there is an accelerometric element consisting of the load, a spring, and a spring pickup with an electromagnetic converter, the signal equalizes dynamic loads acting on the movable system of the balance.
