MAE 170 Experimental Techniques Designation: Required course Catalog Data: MAE 170 Experimental Techniques (4) Principles and practice of measurement, control and the design and conduct of experiments. Technical report writing. Lectures relate to dimensional analysis, error analysis, signal-to-noise problems, filtering data acquisition and data reduction, as well as background of experiments and statistical analysis. Experiments relate to the use of electronic devices and sensors. Prerequisites: Admission to an engineering major and a grade of C- or better in Phys. 2CL. Prerequisites by Topic: Linear circuit theory and lab course using oscilloscopes, simple circuits (e.g. LCR resonating circuit). Textbook, Required Materials: Introduction to Experimental Techniques by Wheeler and Ganji Class/Laboratory Schedule: 2 lecture hours and 3 laboratory hours per week (with 11 sections per week) Course Topics: Lab 1: Intro to Instrumentation and LabView Familiarize student with operating oscilloscope (determine frequency, peak to peak voltage, rms voltage, triggering, etc), function generator, digital multimeter, LabView (calculator.vi), Ohm's Law, Kirchoff's Laws, error analysis Lab 2: A/D Conversion and Sampling Rates Determine resolution of the A/D board, importance of sampling rate, aliasing, FFT, Excel, LabView (resolution.vi) Lab 3: Filters and resonant circuits
