Knowledge and understanding:
At the end of this course the student should know, by means of lab experiments, some of the basics of the fluid mechanics. Moreover, he should gain understanding of the instruments and techniques adopted in measuring the main physical quantities in the field of hydraulics. Finally, the student, should be familiar with the errors and the problems encountered in measuring a physical quantity.
Applying knowledge and understanding:
The student should be able to analyze the experimental data collected during the lab experiments and to identify and classify the sources of errors on the basis of the used instrumentation. Finally, the student should be able to relate the lab results with the theory behind the experiments.
By the end of the course, the student should be able to evaluate, with critical mind, the experimental measurements of physical quantities in the fluid mechanics field.
