Abstract

This report for the Software Support for Metrology programme considers the use of simulations in metrology. It presents three case studies (simulation of pistoncylinder pressure balances using finite element methods, Monte Carlo methods for evaluating the uncertainties associated with the measurements of the absolute thermodynamic temperatures of blackbodies, and molecular dynamics methods) that address the use of simulations to study or derive uncertainties in metrology applications, and uncertainties in simulations themselves. Each case study provides practical advice that can help ensure effective use of simulation techniques in metrology.
