The registration period is expired. (2022-04-14 12:00:00 - 2022-09-26 12:00:00)

Learning goals and contents

Learning goals:

The students are able to:

  • theoretically describe and explain the fundamentals of computer aided measurements and and adopt them practically
  • apply the basics learned during the lecture to a practical problem in the form of a PC excercise
Content of teaching:

The laboratory course offers an introduction into the acquisition of basic test data in fluid mechanics applications as well as a basic hands-on training for the application of modern PC based data acquisition methods. The combination of lectures about measurement techniques, sensors, signal converters, I/O systems, bus systems, data acquisition, handling and control routines and tutorials for typical fluid mechanics applications allows the participant to get a comprehensive insight and a sound knowledge in this field. The graphical programming environment LabVIEW from National Instruments is used in this course as it is one of the standard software tools for data acquisition worldwide.
