Abstract: The preferred time for reading tape length when using dynamic taping is suggested, differing from the one previously proposed. The dynamic taping technique has been suggested as a method for eliminating catenary corrections. An experimental investigation in which the measured length and tape tension were measured as functions of time was conducted to confirm or suggest modifications to the time at which the length should be measured. An analytical method for determining the time-placement relationship of one end of the tape is presented and theoretical curves are shown for a range of amplitudes of tape oscillation. Comparison between an experimental cycle and the theoretical values resulted in good correlation in the critical regions. The tape force-time relationship depends on the observer, and the length-time relationship depends on the force, length, and cross section of the tape. However, the minimum reading of the tape appears to give a more accurate result than the reading previously proposed.
