Learning objectives

The course objective is providing the students with knowledge required to use measurement data and moreover design measurement systems by properly selecting the transducers on the basis of static and dynamic performances. The topics covered by the course are therefore general metrology, uncertainty definition and evaluation, static and dynamic performances of measuring instruments; international standards; measurement systems, data acquisition and recording, sampling and A/D conversion; measurement of length, displacement, velocity, strain, mass, force, pressure, sound, temperature, flow characteristics. The course is based on laboratory activities enabling the student to personally face the problems illustrated in the lecturing, applying the proposed solving methods, getting confident with the most common measuring instruments.
