    Abstract

    Material property studies frequently require the measurement of load and strain. Accurate measurement of both parameters is essential. Methods for accurate static calibration and verification of load transducers and extensometers are well established. More recently, standard practices have been developed for the dynamic calibration of load transducers. Still in its infancy is a standard method for dynamic verification of extensometers.

    Dynamic verification introduces a wide range of new issues. These encompass not only the transducer but also the conditioning electronics and actual test machine. Static calibration permits the “elimination” of nearly all dynamics, whereas dynamic verification must be done in the presence of these dynamic effects. This paper outlines the various concepts that need to be understood when performing the dynamic verification of an extensometer. Problems related to computer aided verification are emphasized, issues of aliasing and resolution in particular.
