Course Objectives This course aims to get the seniors with the mechanical engineering major familiarized with the experimental approach in various fields of mechanical engineering while focusing on the fundamental concepts of measurement techniques. In the lectures, topics like statistical treatment of experimental data and some background material on measuring devices will be covered along with seminars from the industry. It is also one of the objectives of this course to make students to work as a team collectively on conducting experiments, processing experimental data obtained and presentation of the results of their experiments in a formal technical reporting format.
Course Learning Outcomes The students who succeeded in this course;
  • Students are expected to be familiar with experimental systems and measurement devices.
  • Laboratory experiments are expected to provide a hands-on environment to the students for their familiarization with some common instrumentation as well as their use in conducting a series of predesigned experiments.
  • Students are also expected to do write experimental reports.
Course Content Experimental systems, measurement devices, fundamental concepts in measurement and experimentation; designing a measurement system, treatment of experimental data, measurement errors and uncertainty.
