Understand current instrumentation for temperatures and temperaturedifferences. (a, l, m)2. Learn current instrumentation for pressure. (b)3. Understand current instrumentation and methods for velocity and flow rate.(c, m, n)4. Be familiar with data acquisition and analysis systems. (e, f)5. Understand measurement systems for performance analysis. (d, j)Student Learning Outcomes: (Course Objectives Supported)a) Measure system performance parameters. (1, 2, 3)b) Design instrument systems for specified tasks. (4)c) Design instrumentation systems. (5)Instructional Objectives:1.Conditionsa) Students can use pens, paper, calculator and textbooks during lectures.b) Students are allowed to download lectures from the instructor's website.c) Students are permitted to use electronic equipment, software and part kitsin the laboratory2Criteria:a) Students are required to attend lectures and laboratory classes.b) Homeworks and laboratory reports will be turned in on the due date.c) Student must pass the laboratory in order to pass the test.d) Makeup examination will not be given.3.Outcome Competencies
a) Homework will be used to access understanding of materials covered inlectureb) Examination will be used to assess understanding of materials coveredduring the semester in both lecture and laboratory.c)Laboratory reports will be used to assess hands-on application of theory anduse of test equipment and software.LEARNING STRATEGIES:Lectures, demonstrations, problem solving examples.COURSE REQUIREMENTS:Attendance—Attendance is mandatory.Lectures, videos, class projects,labs , class assignments andclass discussions contain important information to do well on exams.Attendance will be taken regularlyduring classes.Required Text/Associated Software:Cengel, Fundamentals of Thermal Fluid Sciences 3rd Edition, 2008, McGraw Hill, ISBN: 978-0-07-352925-7Suggested Supplemental Text and Material:E. O Doeblin, “ Measurement Systems Applications and Design” 4th ed. McGraw-Hill. New York.ISBN 9870-07-017338-9.Calculator, TI-85 or better, with graphing and iterative solver capability.Matlab Software.Grading Criteria:Exam 115%Exam 215%Unannounced quizzes5 %Lab Assignments35%Homework/ smaller projects10%Final15%Attendance, Attitude, Class Participation5%
Missed Exams/Pop Quizzes:Do not count on the instructor to provide you with a make-up exam ormake-up pop quizzes. The instructor teaches too many students and too many classes and does notsimply have the time to be making up exams for each student.Make-up exams will only be administered
