RISE is Sweden's NMI (National Metrology Institute) and, according to the Swedish constitution, is responsible for the central measurement quantities in the International System of Units, SI.
The National Laboratory for sound and vibration is part of RISE metrological activities. We have the country's widest and most accurate resources for measurements and calibrations within the field of sound and vibration. We work continuously to develop and bring out measurement methods in order to meet the need in industry and society for traceability with the measurement uncertainty that different applications require. This is done both within national and international research projects, often in collaboration with other organizations and stakeholders.
Both sound and vibration are derived quantities, that is at realization the traceability is taken from other fundamental quantities in the SI system. The quantity vibration is traceable to length and time.
We are also able to assist with metrology expertise in the field of sound and vibration, whether it concerns investigations on different types of measurement needs, issues relating to the quality of measurements or educational needs in measurement and measurement uncertainty analysis.
