Method for Determining the Clamping Force on a Mechanical Joint Connection Connecting At Least Two Components
The invention relates to a method for determining the clamping force on a mechanical joint connection connecting at least two components by coupling sound waves into the joint connection. The invention is characterized by the combination of the following method steps: exciting the mechanical joint connection in order to generate oscillation, capturing the oscillations made by the joint connection due to the excitement, and analyzing the oscillations of the joint connection on the basis of reference oscillation patterns stored in a reference dataset, a known clamping force prevailing in the joint connection to be tested being associated with each pattern.
