|Enrolment modes:||Trimester 1: Waurn Ponds (Geelong), Cloud (online)|
SEE103 or SEJ102
Campus: 2 x 1 hour classes per week, 1 x 1 hour seminar per week, 4 x 3 hour practicals per trimester. Students must attend and participate in practical activities for this unit at scheduled sessions on multiple days during the trimester.
Cloud (online): Learning experiences are via CloudDeakin. Students must attend and participate in practical activities at the Geelong Waurn Ponds Campus on the scheduled day during the trimester intensive week.
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%, assignment work 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.
