Simulation, Test and Measurement Group

Chairman – David Ensor

Simulation and laboratory testing are increasingly seen as key elements in the product design and development process and the activities of this group address these subjects.

The group is concerned with the philosophy, technical concepts and practice of data collection and analysis techniques and simulation testing in a laboratory environment. All aspects of the measurement and interpretation of service duty, including transducers, instrumentation, measurement systems, strategies and analysis techniques, are covered. The area of simulation and testing addresses items such as functionality, durability and fatigue of components, systems and complete vehicle and  engineering structures. The group holds a number of one day technical meetings each year and a one-day annual ‘Instrumentation Analysis and Testing Exhibition.
