NISTIR 7383 SOP 19 (18) - Part 1

This 2 hour webinar will examine the process of calibrating Volumetric Test Measures using NISTIR 7383 SOP 18 and compare this procedure to SOP 19 and the additional equations and measurement components it contains. 

Learning Objectives:

At the end of (or during) this session, using your notes and SOP 18 you will be able to:

  • DESCRIBE the process of SOP 18 and SOP 19
  • IDENTIFY sources of error
  • IDENTIFY when use of SOP 18 is appropriate, and when SOP 19 should be used
  • Correctly IMPLEMENT OP 18 in the calibration of field standard test measures
