    Project: EU project

    Project Details


    Traceability for static, continuous and dynamic force measurements in material and mechanical testing.

    Reliability of force measurements is needed, as the quality and the safety of many products are based on test results were the acting force is one of the most important quantities.

    Project will improve traceable measurement of force to enable the extension from static to continuous and dynamic force application.

    VTT MIKES determines force transducer properties of selected transfer standards and investigates effects from continuous application of force and from alignment and non-axial forces.
