B.5.3.6. Measurement Process Errors It is assumed that the Fz1 to Fz4 signals are interfered with zero-mean band-limited Identification âwhite noiseâ. The assumed error variance sources (u2F 1 , u2F 2 , u2F 3 , u2 4 ) are the quantization error of z z z Fz the A/D card, the âwhite noiseâ inherent to the analog signal input and any additional random error that may be arose while recording and during data analysis originated by degradation of the equipment over time from previous usage (or user abuse), or from influences of installation and operation environment. Estimation Since the error components were assumed to follow a normal probability distribution, the uncertainty in the input quantities is estimated by the standard deviation of the sample data. It was assumed that the noise variances of the signals registered by each load cell are equals (u2F 1 = u2F 2 = u2F 3 = u2 4 ) and their sum equals the variance obtained by the force measurements z z Fz z system (u2F 1 + u2F 2 + u2F 3 + u2 4 = u2F ) for a static registrationâi.e., u Fz1â4 = z z z Fz z u Fz 2 . Furthermore, a high negative correlation coefficient was assumed between the errors in the input quantities (Ï = â0.9) since Fz1â4 tend to vary in opposite directions when the same Fz is displaced. Hence, the noise standard uncertainty in COP measurement is Â 1 uy = p L (Fz1 )2 + (Fz2 )2 + 36Fz2 (Fz3 + Fz4 )+ 2 5Fz2 (Fz3 + Fz4 )2 + 2Fz1 B.5.3.7. Â ÂÂ 4 3 2 Fz + 18(Fz + Fz ) u2F z â 12 (B.11) Mathematical optimization The method of Lagrange multipliers was used to find the minimum value of the standard uncertainty u y subject to the constraint Fz = Fz1 + Fz2 + Fz3 + Fz4 (Fz1â4 , u Fz â Râ¥0 ). This yields u Fz Fz min u y = L p , for Fz1â4 = 4 2 5Fz B.5.3.8. (B.12) Noise uncertainty in COP after Optimum Smoothing According to Eq. (B.8) the noise standard uncertainty of the COP signal after optimal smoothing is v Lu Fz t Ï f b uo â¥ by Eq. (B.12) Fz 10 B.5.4. Experimental Setup In addition to the procedure that took place for the uncertainty analysis of the COP measurements (Â§ B.3), a dead load (â 294N ) was placed on the top plate of the force platform about its geometrical center and the COP was registered at 30, 230 and 500 Hz for 10 sec. A frequency analysis was made on the COP signals to test whether COP noise is âwhiteâ. To test the influence of the sampling rate another dead load (â 294N ) was placed on the top plate of the force platform about its geometrical center and the COP was registered for 10 sec at an integer sequence of frequencies (30, 40, 50, . . . , 300 Hz). 163
