Technical Committee for Mass and Related Quantities

The measurement of mass is probably the most commonly made measurement for trade, industry and scientific research purposes. These measurement areas support a wide range of industries including power generation, oil and gas, aerospace and automotive, healthcare and pharmaceutical. Areas such as small mass and low force have impact in bio- and nano-technology, micro-fabrication and medicine.

The Technical Committee of Mass and Related Quantities (TC-M) is concerned with measurement issues in technical areas including:

  • Mass
  • Pressure
  • Force
  • Torque
  • Hardness
  • Density
  • Viscosity
  • Gravimetry
  • Dynamic Mechanical Measurements
