Metrology Upgrading Programme - Pressure Measurement and Calibration Techniques

Course Outline

This course covers the principles of modern precision pressure measurements. Fundamental concepts and practical issues commonly encountered in using various types of pressure instruments and standards, both in the laboratories and on field measurements, will be covered. Topics covered include pressure measurements, calibration, metrology and estimation of measurement uncertainties. There will be laboratory sessions on pressure measurements and calibration of pressure gauges and reference standards. This course will be useful for engineers, researchers and consultants involved in precision pressure measurements and calibrations and maintenance of pressure standards and systems.
