Laboratory provides the opportunity to understand the principle of every
physical phenomenon in the real world. Physical behavior of systems can be
measured, modelled or simulated by the means of standard analysis methods and
configurations. Topics include: measurement fundamentals and instruments used
for common engineering measurements, such as displacement, velocity,
acceleration, strain, pressure, temperature, fluid flow rate, and chemical composition.
Experimental planning and analysis methods are covered. The American Society
for Testing and Materials (ASTM) standard methods are introduced. Data
acquisition means are studied.
