A three-component strain gauge load cell for the measurement of thrust produced by a vectored nozzle was designed and calibrated .The load cell had the capability to measure a maximum of '300 Kgf in axial, 100 Kgf each in pitch and yaw directions . The main features of the load cell design were minimum interaction and reasonably high output . This report deals with the design and the calibration tests carried out in respect of this load cell which was subsequently used for experimental studies on scaled vectored nozzles.
