Uncertainties in mechanical testing (UNCERT)

Practical guides for uncertainties in mechanical testing

The Codes of Practice listed below were developed within UNCERT, a project partly funded by the EC's Standards, Measurement and Testing programme. Its aim was to simplify the way in which uncertainties for 17 mechanical tests on metallic materials are evaluated. These are intended for all those interested in measurement and testing and particularly for practicing engineers, technicians, and managers in the manufacturing and service sectors.

The UNCERT manual comprises six sections:

The UNCERT Partners acknowledge the financial support received from the European Commission, without which it would have been impossible to do this work.
