Metallic materials — Calibration of force-proving instruments used for the verification of uniaxial testing machines
|Publication Date:||15 June 2011|
|ICS Code (Mechanical testing of metals):||77.040.10|
This International Standard specifies a method for the calibration of force-proving instruments used for the static verification of uniaxial testing machines (e.g. tension/compression testing machines) and describes a procedure for the classification of these instruments.
This International Standard is applicable to force-proving instruments in which the force is determined by measuring the elastic deformation of a loaded member or a quantity which is proportional to it.
