International comparison of acceleration standards - Preliminary results of the SIM project AV-1
G R. Ripper, Beverly F. Payne
This paper presents the preliminary results obtained in an international comparison on the calibration of acceleration standards by participating laboratories of the Interamerican Metrology System (SIM). Participating laboratories were the National Metrology Institutes of five american countries, i.e., National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST - U.S.A.), National Research Council (NRC - Canada), Centro Nacional de Metrolog?a (CENAM - Mexico), Instituto Nacional de Metrologia, Normaliza??o e Qualidade Industrial (INMETRO - Brazil) and Instituto Nacional de Tecnolog?a Industrial (INTI - Argentina). Interferometric calibrations of three standard accelerometers and charge calibration of a signal conditioner were performed by each of the participating laboratories. A brief description of the experimental procedures and preliminary results for the accelerometers calibration are given in this paper.
