Abstract

NIST served as the pilot laboratory for comparisons of air speed measurement capabilities in thirteen participating laboratories in the range of 0.3 to 15 m/s. Thermal anemmometers and Pitot-stative tubes served as the transfer standards. Two instruments of each type were used to enable Youden graphical analyses of the results. The data indicates there are laboratories producing measurements with significant systematic offsets from NIST's standards. The data is identified only for the laboratory that produced it.
