ASME PTC – Test Uncertainty

They were developed by balanced committees representing all concerned interests and specify procedures, instrumentation, equipment-operating requirements, calculation methods, and uncertainty analysis. Therefore, it is recommended that the uncettainty to a commercial test agree before starting the test and preferably before signing the contract on the method to be used for comparing the test results to the contractual guarantees.

It is beyond the scope of any Code to determine or interpret how such comparisons shall be www. The effort to update the revision began immediately upon completion of that docu.

This revision is notable for the following significant departures from the text: The new nomenclature is expected to render PTC Steele, Vice Chair G. Dieck, Ron Dieck Associates, Inc.

In addition, careful attention was paid to discriminating be. The former w describes an error source whose effect is systematic or constant for the duration of a test.

The latter describes the limits to which a systematic error may be expected to go with some confidence. The former describes an error source that causes wscatter in test data.

The latter describes the limits harmony with international guidelines and standards. This term, too, was included in this Supplement for improved harmony with international guidelines and standards. While this Supplement is in harmony with the ISO GUM, this Supplement emphasizes the effects of errors rather than the basis of the information utilized in the estimation of their limits.

Type B uncertainties do not have data to calculate a standard deviation and must be estimated uncertaintyy other means. This Supplement utilizes two major classifications for errors and uncertainties. In addition, uncertinty is applicable for all known measurement and test uncertainty analyses. Analysis of test measurement and result uncertainty is useful because it a facilitates communication regarding measurement and test results; b fosters an understanding of potential error w sources in a measurement system and the effects of those potential error sources on test results; c guides the decision-making process for select- fx ing ttest and cost-effective measurement sys- tems and methodologies; d reduces the risk of making erroneous deci- www.


Depending on the application, uncertainty sources may be classified either by the presumed effect systematic or random on the measurement or test result, or by the process in which they may be quantified Type A or Type B. The various statistical terms involved are defined in the Nomenclature subsection tdst Glossary subsection The end result of an uncertainty analysis is a numerical estimate of the test uncertainty uncertainth an appropriate confidence level.

The value used is called the assigned value. X and sX are statistics. Other confidence levels may be used, if required. See Nonmanda- z tory Appendix B. Since the true value is unknown, total error w cannot be known and therefore only its expected limits can be estimated. Unceftainty error consists of two components: Accurate measurement requires w minimizing both random and systematic errors see Fig.

Elemental random errors may arise from uncontrolled test conditions and nonrepeatabilities in the measurement system, measurement methods, environmental conditions, data reduction techniques, etc. The total systematic error in a measurement is usually the sum of the contributions of several elemental systematic errors. Elemental systematic errors may arise from imperfect calibration corrections, measurement methods, data reduction techniques, etc. The total uncertainty in a measurement is the combination of uncertainty due to random error and uncertainty due to systematic error.

In successive measurements of the parameter, the values of these elemental random error sources change resulting in the random scatter evident in uncertaknty successive measurements.

The total random population of measurements that is normally dis- error in a measurement is usually the sum of the tributed. Since only a finite number of measurements are uncertaintt during a test, the true population mean w and population standard deviation are unknown but can be estimated from sample statistics. For a defined frequency distribution, the random standard uncertainty of the sample mean, sX, can be used to define the probable interval about the sample mean that is expected to contain the population mean with a defined level of confidence.

The random standard uncertainty of the sample mean is related to the sample standard deviation as follows: In general, increasing the number testt measurements collected during a test and used in the preceding formulas is beneficial as w a it tpc the sample mean as an estimator of the true population mean; b it otc the sample standard deviation as an estimator of the true population standard devia- w tion; and c it typically reduces the value of the random wstandard uncertainty of the sample mean.

Knowledge of the frequency distribution and standard deviation of this population permits de- The elemental systematic sources. As with elemental systematic error, total systematic error is constant, unknown, and may be postulated to z come from a population of possible error values tsst which a single sample error value is drawn and imparted to the average measurement for the.

Typically, total uncertaingy standard uncertainty is quantified by a identifying all elemental sources of systematic w error for the measurement; b evaluating elemental systematic standard uncertainties as the standard deviations of the uncertaintj systematic error distributions; and w c combining the elemental systematic standard uncertainties into an estimate of the total systematic standard uncertainty for the average measurement.

Attempting to identify all elemental sources of systematic error requires a thorough understanding of the test objectives and test process. For further discussion refer to subsection Once all elemental sources of systematic error are identified, elemental system- atic standard uncertainties for each source are evaluated. By definition, an elemental systematic standard uncertainty is a value that quantifies the dispersion of the at the standard population of possible deviation level.

Therefore, the evaluation of an undertainty systematic asmd uncertainty requires that a standard deviation be evaluated from as,e judgment, published asm, or special data. When neither published information or special data is avail- atic Error. Attempting to identify all of the elemen- able, it is often necessary to rely upon engineering tal sources of systematic error for a measurement judgment to quantify the dispersion of errors asso- is an important step of an uncertainty analysis, ciated with an elemental error source.


In uncertainty statement, or a multiple of a standard other words, an interval is estimated which is deviation. Based upon these assumptions, the elemen- m tal systematic standard uncertainty is estimated as follows: In certain situations, knowledge of the physics of the measurement system will lead the analyst to believe that the limits of w error are nonsymmetric likely to be larger in either the positive or negative direction.

For treatment of fx nonsymmetric systematic uncertainty see subsec- tion The value of 2 in the equation is based on the assumption that the population of possible systematic errors is normally distributed. Also, there is some level of uncertainty associated with the estimate of BXk. This uncertainty in the estimate can be converted into a degrees of freedom for the systematic standard uncertainty as shown in w Nonmandatory Appendix B.

For some elemental systematic error sources, published infor- wmation from calibration reports, instrument specifi- interval divided by a statistic that is appropriate for the frequency distribution of the error population.

The specific value of this statistic must be selected on the basis of the defined confidence level tpc degrees of freedom associated with the confidence interval. For situations in which the frequency distribution and degrees of freedom are unspecified, a normal distribution and large degrees of freedom are often assumed.

For situations involving other frequency distributions, refer to an appropriate statistics textbook. If the published information is presented as a multiple of a standard deviation, then the elemental systematic standard uncertainty is estimated as the multiple of the standard deviation divided by the multiplier. Possible sources of this aske data include a interlaboratory or interfacility tests; and b comparisons of independent measurements uncettainty depend on different principles or that have been made by independently calibrated instruments; for example, in a gas turbine test, airflow can be measured with an orifice or a bell mouth nozzle, or computed from compressor speed-flow rig data, turbine flow parameters, or jet nozzle calibrations.

For these cases, the elemental systematic standard uncertainty may be evaluated as follows: The results from each of zsme measurement methods each determined as fx an average value over the duration of the test are used as input to eq.

The results from each of the independent laboratories each de- termined as an offset to be applied to the instrument w when measuring a specific input level are used as input to eq. Otherwise, these elemental systematic standard uncertainties are combined per subsection In some cases, elemental systematic standard uncertainties may arise from the same elemental error source and are therefore correlated.

See subsection for a detailed discussion. The combined standard uncertainty of the measurement mean, which is the total uncertainty at the standard deviation level, is calculated as follows: UX p 2uX Expanded uncertainty is used to establish a confidence inter- Once evaluated, all of the ele- to contain the true value.

A pretest uncertainty analysis is based on data and information that exist before the test, such as calibration histories, previous tests with similar instrumentation, prior w measurement uncertainty analyses, expert opinions, and, if necessary, special tests. A pretest uncertainty analysis allows corrective action to be taken, prior to expending resources w to conduct a test, either to decrease the expected uncertainty to a level consistent with the overall objectives of the test or to reduce the cost of the test while still attaining the objectives.

Additionally, a pretest uncertainty analysis facilitates communication between all parties to the test about the expected quality of the test. This can be essential to establishing agreement on any deviations from applicable test code requirements and can help reduce the risk that disagreements regarding the testing method will surface after conducting the test.

A posttest uncertainty analysis serves to 1 validate the quality of the test result by demonstrating compliance with test requirements; 2 facilitate communication of the quality of the test result to all parties to the test; and 3 facilitate interpretation of the quality of the test by those using the test result.
