Calibration of Short Gauge Blocks by Mechanical Comparison

Project Description

The aim of this project is to prepare the West Balkan Countries for intercomparison measurements and identify the problems that may occur when such countries participate to MRA comparisons. It is expected that the project will provide a basis for these countries during further participation to gauge block comparisons.

The Focus Group (FG) on Facilitating National Metrology Infrastructure Development is concerned with facilitating cooperation and acceleration of the integration process of EURAMET members and associates and WELMEC associates into existing EURAMET and WELMEC structures. In the FG meeting (2010), it was decided to conduct an intercomparison on short gauge blocks by mechanical comparison with the purpose of providing new EURAMET NMIs with exercise in participating in an intercomparison. The discussion whether to register this intercomparison as an official EURAMET supplementary comparison was carried out and it was decided in FG meeting (2011) that this comparison will not be official comparison. It will be an exercise with 2 days preparatory workshop at the initialisation stage and will be piloted by TUBITAK UME.

2 days workshop will be carried out in TUBITAK UME (Turkey) in 5-6 July 2012 with the sponsorship of PTB (National Metrology Institute of Germany) Cooperation Project before intercomparison measurement starts.The gauge blocks to be used in the comparison and all measurements will be provided by TUBITAK UME as well as organisation of the intercomparison measurements.
