The article investigates and analyzes the validation and verification of measurement methods in the clinical diagnostic laboratory. The content and features of validation and verification are revealed. Measurement methods are considered in detail. Each direction of validation and verification of measurement methods is analyzed. The difference between validation and verification is substantiated. Measuring systems are increasingly used in the laboratories of the clinical sector. This means that the responsibility for validation lies mainly with the manufacturer.
The article shows that the commonly used method of estimating the Type A uncertainty of measurements based on the standard deviation of estimators of population parameters does not meet the definition of uncertainty. For correct determination of the standard uncertainty, it is necessary to use the distribution of the corresponding population parameter at the values of population estimators determined from the experiment but not the probability distribution of the estimator.
The main information parameters of the microclimate of greenhouse premises are substantiated, in particular: air temperature, relative humidity, illumination of greenhouse premises, soil temperature, soil humidity, the concentration of carbon dioxide. The cyber-physical system for vegetables’ cultivation with the regulation of temperature-humidity-insolation regime contains three subsystems, namely the subsystem of temperature control, the subsystem of humidity control, and the subsystem of insolation control.
In order to improve the accuracy of gas flowrate measurement by means of the differential pressure flowmeters, it is necessary to apply equations for determination of coefficients of gas flow equation, which would provide the lowest total relative expanded uncertainty of calculation, and to increase the accuracy of input values measurement in real time. One of these values is the arithmetic mean deviation of roughness profile of pipe internal surface. The equation for calculating the arithmetic mean deviation of roughness profile of pipe internal surface in real time was obtained.
At present, the problem of energy efficiency remains extremely important. Modern building technologies allow you to create houses with the minimum power consumption, using energy efficient external protections, including plastic windows. This leads to a reduction in the heat loss of the room, but there is a danger of reducing the required air exchange.
The results of statistical measurements of the resistance of the metal film resistor are given below. The analysis of the dependencies of the standard deviation on the number of measurements σR(N)envisages a tendency of raising σR with the number of measurements. It indicates that the obtained results are not independent since fluctuations of them are not of “white” noise type. The dependence of the standard deviation of measurement results onN confirms the results of other studies.
It is important to carry out metrological confirmation of the used measuring equipment in order to obtain reliable measurement results during the conformity assessment of products. Assessment of the metrological confirmation of the measuring equipment confirms its conformity with the given measuring task. For proper performance of this task it is necessary to have an appropriate measurement technique.
The article focuses on the main problems of methodology of the measurement quality evaluation in the context of introduction into metrological practice of the International Dictionary of Metrology VIM 3. The generalized definition of the notion of measurement quality is given. A separate analysis of measurement quality indexes as a process and quality indexes of measurement result as a product of this process is carried out.
In low-energy and passive houses, about 80 % of the total energy is consumed for fresh air heating or cooling, the reason being the improved thermal insulation and air tightness of such a building. In fact, actual trend of building construction is to keep the windows closed. A similar situation is already encountered in some means of transportation, i. e. air-conditioned trains. Ventilation of the passenger space is assured mainly by a mechanical ventilation and, when the train stops, by a natural ventilation through door opening.
An attention is considered to analysis of instrumental component of result’s uncertainty. While production control in industry, the mentioned component for concrete measuring instrument with the concrete measurement results has to be determined and analyzed. Important is the question of random impacts effect on to uncertainty of extreme (minimum or maximum) observations.
