You are in: Measurement Advice
Measurement Advice builds on NPL's long experience of testing and
standardisation to help users select the correct standard test method for each
property determination, advises on the standards use and applicability, and
lists comparable standards and related information. Advice also provided on
experimental techniques, current standardisation activities, bibliographic
references, experts and NPL literature searches.
- Introduction to testing
discusses the effect of anisotropy,
rate and time dependence on measurement procedures.
- Standards selector tool:
selector allows structured guidance to find the correct standard test
method, with supporting information on scope, use, alternative standards,
- Standardisation activities:
information on new test methods being developed in BIS
programmes, , international pre-normalisation activities (VAMAS); opportunities to be involved in validation
exercises and commenting on new standards during ballots.
- Experimental techniques:
advice on general techniques related to composites,
including strain gauging, machining composites and specimen preparation,
- Literature, Bibliography and expert
