ING-IND/08 10 B - Caratterizzanti Ingegneria meccanica
The subject aims at providing the students with the basic theoretical knowledge and practical skills needed to face important technical problems in the experimental measurements of the main physical quantities in the mechanical and energetic fields. More specifically, the focus will be on engines and fluid machines.
Risultati di apprendimento attesi
As an outcome of the subject, the students should be able to understand, design and organize the experimental activities which are usually carried out within University laboratories, the Industry as well as Research Institutes.
Prerequisiti / Conoscenze pregresse
The students attending this subject should be acquainted with basic knowledge of: mathematics and physics; electricity and fluid-dynamics; mechanics, thermodynamics and heat-transfer, along with Fluid Machinery in general, such as the Internal Combustion Engines, hydraulic pumps, air impellers, and so on.
The main subject topics of the theoretical and applied lectures are:
1. International System of Measurements (SI)
2. Measurement Methods and Experimental Errors
3. System Dynamic Models (zero, first and second order) and Fourier analysis
4. Statistical Data Analysis
5. Basic Electrical Principles (Electrical Components, Bode Plot, Bridges, Operational Amplifiers, Analogical and Numerical Filters )
6. Data Acquisition Systems
7. Instrument connections and Noise protection
8. Temperature measurement
9. Pressure measurement
10. Flow measurement
11. Power measurement
12. Measurement of Combustion products
13. Measurement of displacement
14. Stress and strain measurement
Organizzazione dell'insegnamento
Applied lectures
During the applied lectures the student will solve practical exercises concerning the experimental data analysis, the design of an experimental layout, the choice of a sensor, the design of a measuring chain and the setup of a Digital Acquisition System.
Laboratory Lectures
The student will work with the most common laboratory devices, i.e power sources, oscilloscopes, wave generators, ammeters, voltmeters and ohmmeters. He will be able to design and test very simple electronic circuits based on operational amplifiers. The student will work with the Arduino Uno Board in order to realise electronic measuring/control.

Didactic material provided by the lecturer.
Criteri, regole e procedure per l'esame
The student must pass a written/practical and an oral exam.
The written/practical test is divided into two parts. The first part will deal with the development of an electronic circuit and a sketch for the Arduino Uno board. The teacher will immediately test the execution of the program and the second part will begin only provided that the program runs. The written test will anyhow last a maximum of 3 hours altogether.
The oral exam deals with the theoretical topics analysed during the lectures.
The student can attend the oral exam if the written exam is positively passed.
