Fatigue damage of internal threads has gradually become the main failure mode of force sensor. To make the internal thread structure of force sensor meet the fatigue performance requirements, the design criteria of static strength and fatigue life are comprehensively considered in this paper.
The variation of static stress and fatigue life with the size of the main structure is obtained by simulation. By changing the number of thread turns, the hub height and outer diameter of the hub, the optimized design of the spoke force sensor is determined.
The experiment was carried out based on the determined optimized structure, and the results showed that the fatigue life meets the design requirements.
This research has certain guiding significance for the design and developments of high-cycle fatigue force sensors.
