What does "LCA"mean in "LCA Rugotest"?

 
 
Reply Mon 8 Mar, 2010 07:47 pm
Can anybody tell me what does it mean for the 1st sentence and what does "LCA" actually mean?

Surface roughness:
Calibration plate between n°11 ISO class from n°3 LCA Rugotest.
Rugotest sample is suggested to be used for easy comparison as shown below.

Sorry, the 1st sentence is completed like this:

Surface roughness:
Calibration plate should be between n°9 and n°11 ISO class from n°3 LCA Rugotest.
Rugotest sample is suggested to be used for easy comparison as shown below.

@littlebee01cn,
Rugotest is apparently a type of surface comparator. It has to do with hull roughness, according to this website: http://phoenixmarine.ca/roughness.htm

LCA is evidently Landing Craft Assault. See: http://www.all-acronyms.com/LCA/tag/hull_code

@littlebee01cn,
As I told you before, here,
http://able2know.org/topic/142073-1#post-3914900
you have to look up ISO specs on the ISO website - that's where all their acronyms are listed:
http://www.iso.org/iso/catalogue_detail?csnumber=37456
There is no such thing as a "landing craft assault" in military acronyms, btw, (whoever tagged this topic better erase that tag) - the ISO defines LCA as Life cycle assessment .

That's not true. The LCA delivered men to the beach on D-Day

In this photo one clearly sees an LCA in the foreground and LCT (Landing Craft Tank) behind it.
I agree though that it's not what littlebee is looking for.

@High Seas,
The old term was Landing Craft, Assault, to distinguish if from Landing Craft, Mechanized - it's wonderful to see all those military acronym experts adding erroneous tags here, btw, making the forum ever less useful via irrelevancies Smile

@panzade,
You've been answered already, Panzade - the query here relates to ISO specs, not to WWII pictures. Read before you post - accuracy is vital to specs: there's no comma between LC and A in the ISO definition.

@panzade,
I did read this, Panzade - the comment referred to your comment "that's not true". If YOU don't read what YOU write, I can't blame you, but that doesn't necessarily apply to others Smile

@High Seas,
So, let me get this straight. You stand by your assertion?

@panzade,
Few things are more boring than people who quote themselves, but in your case - demonstrated inability to read simple declarative sentences - an exception has to be made. I won't repeat it twice, so kindly parse it however slowly you have to:

@High Seas,
Wow. I feel like I've been intellectually bitch slapped but your insults are so gentle that I can't be sure.
In any case, I always enjoy interacting with you and look forward to it in the future. Very Happy
