Fundamental Good Practice in Dimensional Metrology

Authors: Flack, D & Hanniford, J

Take a journey through the basic concepts of measuring size and shape of components with accurate and traceable measurements.

To accurately define the shape of a component, certain fundamental concepts of geometry such as straightness and roundness are used. For accurate measurement, concepts such as diameter and length are used. To achieve accuracy in these measurements, reference must be made to some standard of length.

Useful for those who need to make dimensional measurements but are not necessarily trained metrologists.
