ASME PTC 19.23
Part 23: Guidance Manual for Model Testing Instruments and Apparatus
|Publication Date:||1 January 1980|
To prepare a compendium of techniques and methods for model testing. This general procedure is to serve as a guide for the design and application of models by those concerned with the extension or supplementation of prototype tests of equipment and apparatus coming under the aegis of the ASME Performance Test Codes Committee. Where there are test codes in existence covering specific equipment, the guiding principles, instruments and methods of measurement from such codes shall be used with only such modifications as become necessary by virtue of the fact that a model is being tested instead of a prototype. Where models of components, systems, etc. are involved, and no test codes covering these are in existence, guiding principles and methods of measurement may be requested from this Committee (PTC 19.23).
