The Shortt clock, made within the 1920's is the main well-known actual clock pendulum ever recognized, having an accuracy of 1 moment in step with 12 months whilst stored at approximately consistent temperature. just about all of a pendulum clock's accuracy is living in its pendulum. If the pendulum is actual, the clock should be actual. during this publication, the writer describes many medical points of pendulum layout and operation only with experimental facts, and little arithmetic. it's been written, the entire assorted components and elements of the pendulum in nice element, bankruptcy via bankruptcy, reflecting the measure of cognizance important for creating a pendulum run correctly. the subjects coated contain the dimensional balance of alternative pendulum fabrics, sturdy and bad suspension spring designs, the layout of mechanical joints and clamps, influence of quartz on accuracy, temperature reimbursement, air drag of other bob shapes and making s sinusoidal electromagnetic force. One entire bankruptcy is dedicated to easy methods of enhancing the accuracy of standard inexpensive pendulum clocks, that have a distinct development to the dearer designs of considerably well-made ones. This booklet will turn out priceless to an individual who desires to understand how to make a extra exact pendulum or pendulum clock.

Example text

The reason for the historical connection of Q to long-term accuracy is not known. Q may be a smaller version of the more general rule that the less you disturb a pendulum, the more accurate it will be. And about two-thirds of the total accuracy increase (227 to 1) available from increasing a pendulum’s Q is not available unless the pendulum is put in a vacuum enclosure. In summary, on a global scale covering all types of clocks, I agree with Bateman and Woodward—long-term clock accuracy is broadly proportional to Q.

Their short time spans drastically reduce their usefulness as indicators of a clock’s time performance. 3, where all three time error curves are shown: the actual, leveled, and rms time error curves. Then decide for yourself whether the effort to calculate the variance and the rms time error is worthwhile. A few people should still calculate them, just to see if something more useful might come out of it. And finally, a few words on perspective. The Allan variance is a measure of an oscillator’s random errors only, with all of the systematic errors carefully removed.
