The course will provide the basic concepts in instrumentation and
measurements. The course presents a methodological approach to experimentation
by breaking it into its phases to plan, implement, debug, execute and report
experiments in order to track and minimize measurement uncertainties. Theory for measurement
systems, dimensional analysis and error analysis are developed to
support design and evaluation of experiments and data. An overview of
measurement technologies based on optical, acoustical, mechanical,
chemical and electrical methods is given. Electrical interference and common error sources are covered as well as
calibration and traceability. Data acquisition and processing are
covered in the laboratory work where the software packages LabView
and Matlab are used.
* Experimentation, errors and uncertainty
* Statistical considerations
* General and detailed uncertainty analysis
* Installation effects and dynamic influences
* EMC considerations of experimental set-ups
* Overviews of acoustical, electrical, mechanical, optical and chemical measurement methods
* Standards and traceability
