Measurement and Information Technology I
The course offers an overview of the techniques and equipment used in the measurement of flows in both industry and the laboratory.
Various measurement techniques are employed in order to investigate fluid mechanical problems hands-on. Alongside measurement technology, other aspects are handled, such as computer-aided data collection and processing, as well as carrying out a project in a team oriented manner. The course also includes an introduction to the software “Labview.”
Group work is required.
