Objectives of the course
The course is aimed to provide the basic knowledge of the modern science of the measures including the measurement uncertainties evaluation. The operating principles and the correct use of the electronic instrumentation both analog and digital is illustrated. The laboratory activity will help the student to acquire familiarity with the instrumentation and the measurement techniques.
' Fundaments of the measurement theory; The measurement process, the influence factors, direct and indirect measurements. The measurement uncertainties type A and B and their evaluation.
' International system of measurement unit; reference standards,
