Inertia force during dynamic testing exists in any testing system. A generic system is analyzed using the principle of rigid body dynamics. It is shown that the load recorded by a load cell includes both the load experienced by the test specimen and the inertia force from the mass between the specimen and the load cell, when the load cell is placed on the fixed side of the test specimen. An impact fixture designed for spot weld strength test was then studied as an example. Test data were collected and analyzed to show the effect of inertia on the impact strength of the spot weld.
