The unit focuses on the concepts of measurement processes and instrumentation systems and considers the experimental errors in physical measurement methods. It provides a description of general measurement systems, characteristics of measuring instruments, classification of sensing devices, transducers and bridge circuits, measurement of key physical parameters of engineering significance such as temperature, pressure, flow, and strain, classification of measurement noises and noise reduction techniques, data analysis and supervisory control and data acquisition concepts. The requirements for design and interfacing of common measurement devices are examined in theory, and also in practice through laboratory sessions.


Examination 50%, engineering problem solving task (2 x 10%) 20%, practical exercises 30%. To be eligible to obtain a pass in this unit, students must achieve an overall mark of at least 40% in the examination and a mark of at least 50% in the practical exercises.
