Interlaboratory Studies

In the VANESSA project we conducted international inter-laboratory studies (ILS)  to evidence that the proposed calibration and validation procedures form a solid basis for the development of the CEN Workshop Agreement as part of the standardization process.
  • The Calibration ILS was based on a reference material for calibration of optical systems for displacement and strain field measurement.
  • The Validation ILS was based on three test cases and a protocol for comparing experimental data to results from computational solid mechanics models.
