U.S. TAG to ISO/TC 108, Mechanical vibration, shock and condition monitoring

Chair: W. Madigosky
email: wmadigosky@yahoo.com

Scope of ISO/TC 108, Mechanical vibration, shock, and condition monitoring

Standardization in the field of mechanical vibration and shock and condition monitoring and diagnostics of machines, including:

  • terminology;
  • excitation by sources, such as machines and vibration and shock testing devices;
  • elimination, reduction and control of vibration and shock, especially by balancing, isolation and damping;
  • measurement and evaluation of human exposure to vibration and shock;
  • methods and means of measurement and calibration;
  • methods of testing;
  • methods of measurement, handling and processing of the data required to perform condition monitoring and diagnostics of machines.

U.S. TAG to ISO/TC 108/SC 5, Condition monitoring and diagnostics of machine systems

Chair: D.J. Vendittis
email: DVendittis@aol.com

Scope of ISO/TC 108/SC 5

Standardization of the procedures, processes and equipment requirements uniquely related to the technical activity of condition monitoring and diagnostics of machines in which selected physical parameters associated with an operating machine are periodically or continuously sensed, measured and recorded for the interim purpose of reducing, analyzing, comparing and displaying the data and information so obtained and for the ultimate purpose of using this interim result to support decisions related to the operation and maintenance of the machine.

Vice Chair: P.D. Schomer
email: schomer@schomerandassociates.com

Scope of ISO/TC 43, Acoustics

Standardization in the field of acoustics, including methods of measuring acoustical phenomena, their generation, transmission and reception, and all aspects of their effects on man and his environment.

U.S. TAG to ISO/TC 43/SC 3, Underwater acoustics

TAG Chair: M.A. Bahtiarian
Email: mikebaht@gmail.com

Scope of ISO/TC 43/SC 3:

Standardization in the field of underwater acoustics (including natural, biological, and anthropogenic sound), including methods of measurement and assessment of the generation, propagation and reception of underwater sound and its reflection and scattering in the underwater environment including the seabed, sea surface and biological organisms, and also including all aspects of the effects of underwater sound on the underwater environment, humans and aquatic life.

U.S. TAG to IEC/TC 29, Electroacoustics

Chair: C. Walber - cwalber@pcb.com

 

Scope of IEC/TC 29, Electroacoustics

To prepare International Standards related to instrumentation and methods of measurement in the field of electroacoustics.

Excluded from the scope are:

  1. standards for sound and video recording as dealt with by TC 60;
  2. standards for equipment in the field of audio and audio- visual engineering as dealt with by TC 84;
  3. standards and terminology for ultrasonic techniques dealt with by TC 87.

NOTE - Close co-operation shall, however, be maintained with TC 87 in the fields of common interest.
