Course Description

This course presents techniques and devices for measurements in mechanical systems of solids and fluids. Lectures will cover the selection and application of transducers; the dynamic response of measurement systems; methods of data acquisition and recording; uncertainty analysis; data reduction and presentation of results; and the different roles of measurements in engineering practice. The laboratory will provide hands-on experience with practical measurements of pressure, temperature, strain, position and velocity. Tutorial sessions will concentrate on solving problems related to the design of experiments, data analysis and dynamic simulation of measurement systems. (0/0/0/51/0)
