7. Model Support Effects

Model support effect is accounted through the loading coefficients on each separate component of balance. These are determined as functions of Reynolds number in special methodological experiments. Approximations of functions are performed and approximation coefficients are written in special file. During specific object testing, the support loadings are calculated in real time according to test conditions and subtracting from measured loadings on the model.
