Al’manac of Modern Metrology № 4 (5) 2015

The fifth issue, which comes out at the end of 2015, sums up a year of metrological activity in a variety of fields, in particular time-frequency, radio, and acoustic measurements, and discusses prospects for development of these areas and their standards bases.
The journal publishes new results of metrological investigations in the field of pulse pressures, ionising radiations, thermodynamic temperature.
The need for adjusting the normative base in the area of ensuring the uniformity of measurements according to the legislation of the Russian Federation is discussed.
Of interest are the articles which consider from a historical angle the emergence and development of such VNIIFTRI research areas as measurement of the parameters of an electrostatic field, physicochemistry, and shock wave metrology.
