This guide discusses the estimation of uncertainty in force measurement, including interpretation of relevant national and international standards.
An introduction to uncertainty is provided, together with its application to deadweight force standard machines, force transducers, secondary force standard machines, and materials testing machines. There then follows a recommendation on good practice in the treatment of the uncertainty of measurement as applied to force transducers. An appendix provides a more detailed introduction to the characteristics of force transducers.
