Project: Traceable dynamic measurement of mechanical quantities

Many industries would benefit from more accurate dynamic measurements of mechanical quantities such as force, torque and pressure. However, measurements of these quantities are presently based on static calibrations, even though it is accepted that measurement instruments behave differently when the force changes over time. This limitation is significant and impacts the automotive, aerospace and transport industries. For example, it impacts safety assessment measurements in car crash testing and the characterisation of the strength of weight-saving materials used in both cars and aircraft. The project will establish traceable dynamic measurements for force, torque and pressure, and will produce precise dynamic mechanical test signals to improve the safety of industrial systems.
