ADVISE has developed reference materials that allow traceability and
calibration of image-based methods of deformation measurement in
cyclic, transient and non-linear dynamic events.
In 2009, the wider community was polled to decide on essential and desirable attributes for the reference materials for dynamic calibration. This poll has resulted in a list of weightings.
Based on the list of attributes candidate reference materias have beenl designed. A reference material based on a plate-in-a-frame concept was specified and a prototype was manufactured. You can download the specifications of the prototype design here.
