Sound velocity measurements

Accuracy of sound velocity measurements( <=0.1% ?)

During the revision of the ISO 2400 Standard for the IIW block Nr. 1 we had to discuss
the problem of the accuracy at sound velocity measurements achievable with standard laboratory equipments.
This debate showed us that the difficulties with this problem tend to be underestimated. An absolute accuracy
of 0.1 % can be realized only with a certain amount care during the measurements.
As a reference I would like to indicate a contribution presented at the ASTM New Methods Seminar
