Key personnel of the stated laboratories participate in the creation of procedures for implementation and evaluation of interlaboratory comparisons and for the calculation of measurement uncertainty developing and using different statistical models. Department of Chemistry is active as a PT provider in relevant areas as disseminator of reference values with measurement uncertainty of the assigned values evaluated applying empirical models.
Laboratory for volume and flow provides Computational Fluid Dynamics support for on-going EMRP project ENG59-NNL: "Sensor development and calibration method for inline detection of viscosity and solids content of non-Newtonian liquids". CFD modelling of non-Newtonian liquids is used for deeper analysis of the flow features in viscometers including examination of measurement results, influence of the presence of solid particles, instability occurrence and geometry (end) effects.
Katarina Hafner, an expert advisor and quality manager at the Chemistry Department of the Institute of Metrology of Bosnia and Herzegovina. Responsible for the activities within laboratory at the level of preparation and analysis of technical documentation on metrological parameters of the research activities, requirements, conditions or characteristics of measuring instruments, methods or procedures in the laboratory, as well as International correspondence. She is active in preparation of the development and research project proposals within EURAMET bodies and through bilateral cooperation with other NMIs and external partners, as well as implementation of projects objectives. Implementation of the requirements of ISO 17025 and ISO 17043 to the achievement of accreditation certificate from national accreditation bodies of B&H: BATA and Germany: DAkkS, respectively. She is currently involved on the ENG54 Metrology for Biogas JRP.Contact directly: EmailHafner
Branko Vučijak, an expert advisor at the Institute of Metrology of Bosnia and Herzegovina and a professor at the Faculty of Mathematical Engineering, University of Sarajevo. Dr Vučijak has more than thirty three years of experience, most of that in the management in water and environment sector, in parallel to teaching at the university with both applied mathematics and engineering education background.
