a) To prepare protocols, organise and collate the results from an inter-laboratory study on a reference material for the calibration
of measurement systems capable of measuring static or dynamic deformation fields.
b) To prepare protocols, organise and collate the results from an inter-laboratory study on a validation procedure for computational solid mechanics models.
c) To provide evidence that the reference materials for calibration and the validation methodology form a solid base for the proposed standardisation activity.
a) To integrate the work on the calibration of strain fields in static, planar components with recent work on calibration of displacement and strain fields in dynamic, three-dimensional components.
b) To prepare a CEN Workshop Agreement on validation of computational solid mechanics models using strain fields from calibrated optical measurement systems.
Knowledge Exchangea)To promote the inter-laboratory studies and standardisation actions being undertaken in the project.b) To disseminate the knowledge associated with the project to the EU industrial base.
c) To engage in knowledge exchange with the international engineering community in order to achieve excellence in the standards work and to accelerate their international acceptance.
