Unformatted text preview: ENME 351 ELECTRONICS AND INSTRUMENTATION II COURSE SYLLABUS, SPRING 2011 Instructors Sarah Bergbreiter (x56506, [email protected], 2170 Glenn Martin Hall) Jungho Kim (x55437, [email protected], 3137 Glenn Martin Hall) Teaching Assistants Gustavo Suarez, [email protected] Felix Stief, [email protected] Yen-Chen Liu, [email protected] Course Description This course is a continuation of ENME 350, Electronics & Instrumentation I. It includes two hours of lecture and two hours of laboratory per week. The material covers a range of topics essential to making measurements and obtaining good data from them. Topics to be covered include some electronics (bridge circuits, amplifiers, analog/digital conversion), signal collection (sampling, aliasing), signal conditioning/filtering (Fourier transforms, filters), data analysis (statistics), and system modeling (1st, 2nd order systems). Subjects to be covered Introduction, general measurement systems, calibration, standards Waveforms, frequency analysis, Fourier series, Fourier transform System models, 0th order, 1st order, 2nd order systems Statistics Analog devices and measurements, amplifiers, analog circuits Digital sampling, aliasing, A/D and D/A converters, DAQs Uncertainty analysis Sensors (inertial, temperature, pressure, flow, etc.) Time & Place Lecture, M, W, 10:00 -10:50 AM, EGR 1202 Studio 0101, M 3:30-5:20 PM, EGR 0126, Felix Stief Studio 0102, Tu 1:00-2:50 PM, EGR 0126, Gustavo Suarez Studio 0103, We 1:00-2:50 PM, EGR 0126, Gustavo Suarez Studio 0104, Th 1:00-2:50 PM, EGR 0126, Gustavo Suarez Studio 0105, Th 3:30-5:20 PM, EGR 0126, Felix Stief Studio 0106, Fr 1:00-2:50 PM, EGR 0126, Felix Stief The final exam will be held on Wednesday, May 18, 8:00-10:00 AM in EGR 1202 Textbook The required textbook for the course is Theory and Design for Mechanical Measurements, Richard S.

The web site www coursesmart.com has a link to an ebook version that is significantly less expensive than the hardcopy. 1.1-1.6 2.1-2.5 3.1-3.3 4.1-4.6 6.1-6.8 7.1-7.6 5.1-5.8 Office Hours • Gustavo Suarez: Tuesdays 11-1 PM in 0126 EGR, 301-405-5315 • Felix Stief: Wednesdays 3-5 in 2132 EGR, 301-405-0355 • Prof. Bergbreiter: Wednesdays 11-12, and by appointment. It is best to email or call beforehand, but you can drop by anytime and she will help you if she is not otherwise occupied. • Prof. Kim will have open office hours. It is best to email or call beforehand, but you can drop by anytime and he will help you if he is not otherwise occupied. Grading Midterm exam: 20% Final exam: 30% Laboratories: 25% Homework: 15% Pop quizzes: 10% Exams One midterm and one final exam will be given. The exams will be closed book/closed notes. You will be allowed two sheets of paper (front and back) for the midterm and four sheets for the final to summarize the course material. Studio/Laboratory The studios will supplement the lectures through the use of example problems, presentation of new material, and labs. The five labs are an integral part of the course, and you must complete the laboratory assignments to obtain a passing grade for the course. Please note the following. • You must attend your assigned lab session. There are no make-up labs without a university-approved excuse. • You cannot turn in a lab report if you did not attend the lab. • Specific instructions for each lab will be posted on Blackboard. It is your responsibility to print out a copy of each lab assignment before you come to the lab. • Every student will be required to complete a prelab before coming to studio—this prelab will be collected by the TA at the beginning of the lab session and will be worth 20% of the overall lab grade. • Although students will work in groups of up to 3, individual reports are required. Reports are to be your own work (see below on Academic Integrity). • Lab reports (hard copies) are due one week after you completed the lab, unless announced otherwise. No late labs will be accepted. Homework Homework will be assigned through Blackboard. All homework assigned during a given week is due the following Wednesday by 5 PM to the TA, and solutions will be posted the next day on the web. Two HW problems will be chosen to be graded. The homework will be returned one week later. Late homework is not accepted. You will be able to drop the lowest two HW grades, so you can miss two assignments (due to illness, religious holidays, personal reasons, etc.) without penalty. As a courtesy to the professor and the teaching assistant, solutions should be written neatly. Work that is judged to be too difficult to decipher by the TA or professor will be given zero credit. Quizzes Pop quizzes will be given throughout the semester in both lecture and studio. Lecture quizzes will be given at the beginning of class. The studios and lectures that have pop quizzes have been chosen randomly, so it may be possible for all or none of the lectures or studios to have quizzes in any particular week. The total number of quizzes throughout the semester could vary from studio to studio. You will be allowed to drop your lowest two quiz scores (due to illness, religious holidays, personal reasons, etc.) without penalty. Code of Academic Integrity It is University policy that academic honesty be upheld. We are all responsible for following this code and to challenge and report any violations of this policy to the University Honor Council in writing. The TAs and the professors will not tolerate cheating or even the appearance of cheating on any work performed as part of this course. If we see cheating or apparent cheating, we will confront the person immediately and tell the person to stop. If we see it again, we will report the person to the University Honor Council.
