LAB REPORT FORMAT (FULL REPORTS ONLY) Louisiana State University-Mechanical Engineering Department Utilize 1”Margins, Single-Space with 12 point times or Times Roman Font on all Lab Reports! The Lab Report Format outlined here is based on the suggestions of J.P.Holman in “Experimental Methods for Engineers,” McGraw Hill company, Inc., New York, 1978. Follow the procedure listed below when writing full lab reports: 1. Sketch an outline of the report including as much detail as available. 2. Wait for a period of time, a day or so, before proceeding. 3. Revise the outline and make any corrections you feel are necessary. 4. Write the entire report relatively quickly in rough draft format. 5. Again, wait for a period of time, a day or so before proceeding. 6. Proof read your draft making corrections as you go; try to get the report in final form. 7. Have a competent colleague proofread the report in detail. 8. Rewrite the report as in its final form considering your colleagues comments whenever appropriate. The organization provided by the following report format is straightforward and suitable for the types of experiments that will be conducted in this class. In the text that follows, each section of the report is discussed in detail. It will become clear that each section of the report has a specific function and minimum requirements that must be met by the writer. If each section is written so that it performs its intended function, the final result will be a clear and efficiently written laboratory report. - Lab Reports will be graded based on content and completeness. -
