The knowledge platform for Dynamic measurements is a long-term investment where RISE, together with academia and industry, builds and spreads competence within measurement, calibration and traceability of fast mechanical processes.
Most measurements of mechanical processes take place under dynamic conditions. This works well as long as the measuring instrument is faster than the process being measured. When the speed of the process increases the demands on the performance of the measuring instrument also increases.
Still, virtually all calibration of mechanical measuring systems takes place under static or quasi-static conditions. This is partly due to the very low measurements uncertainties achievable. However, primary methods for dynamic calibration are almost completely missing.
A consequence of this is that one cannot be sure what the measured values in fast mechanical processes really correspond to, and that results cannot be guaranteed to be comparable.
