Development of measurement and calibration techniques for dynamic pressures and temperatures

Project: EU project

Project Details


Improving the reliability of pressure and temperature measurements in rapidly changing conditions.    
Pressure and temperature measurements in dynamically changing conditions are inaccurate as sensors calibrated under static conditions do not behave similarly in rapidly changing environments.
Project will develop traceable calibration methods for dynamic pressure and temperature sensors for use within industrial settings.
VTT MIKES develops measurement standards for dynamic pressure and a dynamic pressure sensor and characterizes it in a maritime engine.
Call 2017: Metrology for Industry
